    6. 6. What is Social Capital?  “The central premise of social capital is that social networks have value. Social capital refers to the collective value of all "social networks" [who people know] and the inclinations that arise from these networks to do things for each other ["norms of reciprocity"].”  The commonalities of most definitions of social capital are that they focus on social relations that have productive benefits  Social capital is about the value of social networks, bonding similar people and bridging between diverse people, with norms of reciprocity (Dekker and Uslaner 2001http://www.socialcapitalresearch.com/literature/definition.html http://www.bettertogether.org/socialcapital.htm 6
    7. 7. Why is Social Capital Important?  Leverage relationships for personal and community transformation  At least 60% - some report even higher statistics - of all jobs are found by networking  Students of college educated parents have greater access to the forms of cultural and social capital that facilitate access to educational and economic opportunities in our society. Recent research has shown that first-generation students and their parents often lack important “college knowledge” about the process of preparing, applying, and paying for college due to the lack of experience with postsecondary education in their families http://0-nces.ed.gov.opac.acc.msmc.edu/pubs2001/2001072_Essay.pdf 7
