AT YLABS WE USE DESIGN, DATA AND INNOVATIVE FINANCING MODELS TO DELIVER PROGRAMS THAT SUPPORT YOUNG PEOPLE.
We believe that today's investments in the health and success of our youth will yield positive returns for the future.
YLabs works with governments and local organisations to design, evaluate and scale programs designed with young people that address the key health, economic and social challenges facing today's youth.
Our team of physicians, designers, economists, public health professionals and educators bring a unique mix of youth-centered design, impact evaluation, adolescent medicine and implementation know-how to the global problems facing youth.
HUMAN CENTERED DESIGN FOR YOUTH
We offer packages of training to support individuals and organizations who want to practice youth-centered design. Our fun, interactive workshops give you tools and methods to be able to design with young people, using a participatory approach. Our team has led youth-centered design workshops and bootcamps for international NGOs and leading academic institutions, including Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, UC Berkeley, Pathfinder, Population Services International and Marie Stopes International. For more information, contact us.
Amazing, eye-opening, and fun experience. Prototyping is new to us and so helpful to our work. I never thought I’d see our CEO covered in kitchen wrap for a prototype— Participant, 2015
All I can say is "wow!" The students were so excited about the event. You were brilliant in the way you pushed through the material, made some points about process, and got them to work. — Participant, April 2016

for us. — Participant, May 2016
