Social capital arising from social networks based on trust has been traditionally seen as the property of adults from which the younger generation gain benefit. Far less attention has been given to the production of social capital among young people themselves in making the transition from dependent child to independent adult. Through findings from research groups in Finland and England, Helve and Bynner fill the gap by examining how young people develop and use social capital in different contexts at school and outside.
