Building on its 12 years of experience in Youth inclusion, the LP4Y Alliance launched the YouthLAB project. In the Paris suburbs (Seine-Saint-Denis) and in New York City (in the Bronx), the YouthLAB are innovation hubs to tackle Youth Inclusion challenges. They are gathering places, locally based in underserved areas and close to communities, each with a specific focus.
Paris - Talent Hub for Youth Inclusion
Center for recruiting, training, and sending inclusion professionals on international solidarity missions.
Certifying training space for all audiences (companies, individuals, or social organizations) on issues related to diversity and inclusion.
New York - Advocacy Hub for Youth Inclusio
The YouthLAB NY is located in Harlem and the Bronx, one of the five most disadvantaged districts in the United States, where one in two residents lives in poverty.
In New York City, the proximity to the United Nations headquarter enables a high potential to settle an Advocacy Hub for the whole LP4Y movement and more globally the Youth Inclusion cause by:
Spreading the voice of the Youth on environmental and social challenges they face through a digital media (Youth Channel) and give them a platform.
Sharing our field experience and expertise within the United Nations and public institutions.
Raising awareness in companies, colleges, universities, and amongst our global ecosystem.
