    This overview of youth unemployment includes an outline of key trends in Asia and Australia. Within these broad macro trends are a range of factors shaping youth unemployment, such as demographic change and migration. This report provides some recommendations as to how social enterprises could seek to respond to the challenges and opportunities arising in relation to unemployment, as well as proposing several relevant questions to be tackled in the future. The final section provides an overview of two case-studies from Australia: the Worlds of Work program developed by the Foundation for Young Australians and the Education First Youth Foyers, a joint initiative by The Brotherhood of St Laurence and Hanover.
