Our government is being strangled by partisan politics, youth employment is at a 60-year low, and student loan debt has surpassed $1 trillion-and yet young Americans are starting businesses in record numbers, all over the United States. If we want Millennials (and future generations) to survive and thrive in the new economy, then we need to funnel this entrepreneurial energy into something positive, or risk turning the Millennial generation into a lost generation. The solutions in this book represent the beginning of an important conversation about how to support and foster the real leaders of tomorrow.From policy ideas and educational programs, to private sector solutions and philanthropic activities, #FixYoungAmerica provides best practices and tangible solutions for solving the epidemic of youth unemployment-straight from the individuals and organizations that are already in the trenches, working to rebuild an entrepreneurial America right now.
