The promotion of new ventures is one of the basic pillars and strategic axes to generate social inclusion, job opportunities, innovation, economic and social development in Latin American economies; being for many young Latin Americans the only option to obtain a decent income. The levels of youth unemployment in 2020, in a large part of the economies of the region, exceed 20%, so it is urgent to identify alternatives for generating employment, which allow improving the quality of life of the population in general and of young people. The analysis is based on the documentary review of technical scientific sources related to youth unemployment and entrepreneurship as an alternative to the phenomenon; especially with data from recent reports (between the years 2018 to 2021). Unemployment in the young population is a generalized problem that affects the countries of the Latin American region, which settled with the COVID-19 pandemic. Entrepreneurship is a key tool to directly address the problem of unemployment and those created by young people are generating sources of employment in Latin American countries.
