Youth Impact Labs (YIL) is a three-year global youth employment initiative, supported by Google.org, that identifies and stimulates creative, technology-oriented solutions to youth unemployment. 

YIL has helped develop opportunities for job creation and economic growth through innovation - particularly in the face of COVID-19.

The speakers will provide an introduction and high level overview of YIL and the successes and challenges learned through this innovative model.

This webinar is the launch of a larger two day event by Mercy Corps - registration gives you access to all the sessions.
