Through the Lab’s projects, youth and adolescent girls and boys of ages 14-25 of mainly marginalized backgrounds are empowered to lead the design, development, and implementation of youth-led social change projects by adapting the hands-on, learn-while-doing elements that lead to products, services or public advocacy campaigns. The Lab offers Youth-led Projects funding, guidance, and equipment to turn their social impact ideas into reality.
I loved participating at the Ponder workshop from the Innovations Lab. We learned about critical thinking, the importance of relying on facts and statistics instead of beliefs; and last but not least, about academic writing.
Enormous place, which makes big ideas become enormous as well.
Innovations Lab Kosovo opened up many new avenues where I can accomplish my goals. It taught me a way of thinking that can be applied to many other areas of life. The reaction to learning to solve problems is overwhelmingly positive.
Innovations Lab is the place that has motivated me a lot, how to be an advocate for my community, and the best part is that they value for what you are and not based on the origin, or ethnicity you have!
At the Lab's Ponder workshop, I gained new experiences which will stay in my memory for a very long time. We learned about how to approach problems, how to write well and how to think critically.
Working together with Innovations Lab Kosovo has helped me develop socialy as well as psychologicaly, it has helped me to further develop my leadership skills and to be more responsible for the work I do.
The Lab's Ponder workshop is by far the best activity I have ever taken part in. I liked how it was organized, the activities, the articles, the mentors who pushed us to always think critically, and the exercises that provided us with hands-on practical experience. It was really entertaining!
