Build skills such as team management, problem solving, and advocacy needed to turn ideas into action

Y-Lab will provide students the tools they need to have an impact through a series of workshops. The program begins with teaching students how to establish a team, pick a problem, and devise a solution. Other weeks will cover identifying individual skills and leadership styles, time management, working with a team and building consensus, fundraising, and leveraging your network.
