Policy Labs

Youth Lab’s strength and authenticity lies in our regular and robust engagemt with young South Africans all over the country. Through our various platforms, we provide a safe space for young South Africans to ventlate the issues that affect them and critique the policies that impact their daily lives. We also use our position as an established youth organisation to bring young people together with stakeholders like political leaders, industry titans and researchers to engage on policy and governance issues shape South Africa.

Policy Conversations

Our Policy Conversations, in partnership with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation South Africa, encourage young people to express their opinions, and challenge ideas about the hurdles facing young South Africans.

Policy Briefs

Our Policy Briefs are gathered from real-world interaction with young South Africans. We gather their perspectives on the policies that shape their lives and sending this feedback to key stakeholders and policymakers.

Policy Dialogues

Policy Dialogues bring young people, political leaders and policy shapers together in one room. These dialogues promote frank discussion about policy and governance, with the hope of bringing real change.
