In entrepreneurship education programs across the country high school students learn to navigate - and thrive in - uncertainty, while attempting to better the world. In the process, these students develop skills and a sense of purpose and agency that prepares them for success in school and in life. This panel will explore the ways youth entrepreneurship can make a difference not only in the lives of students, but also in broader society by addressing issues of social and economic mobility.
