This chapter reviews the chapters in the book and identifies ways in which social capital might be better fostered. In terms of research and policy, the situated and transient nature of social capital is identified as both a challenge and an opportunity. It is concluded that young people make choices and gain chances for success through information and opportunities available in social networks both within schools and especially in the wider community. Therefore policy and practice to enable all young people to access a wider range of social networks is likely to enhance outcomes.
