The Toughest Questions Are An Opportunity To Create The Most Innovative Solutions
The ethos of the organization is also in its name – we do not believe that the right solution is necessarily the easiest one to find. Youth Lab is a laboratory, with young people using our various programmes and platforms to create new thought patterns, challenge norms and devise solutions for the challenges facing South Africa's past and present. Youth Lab empowers young people to create their own destinies.
