At the Community Innovation Lab, (Co-ilab), our focus is on mitigating 'the underemployment crisis' facing post secondary youth, by crafting innovative experiential opportunities to engage youth in cross sectoral initiatives that addresses system failures associated with complex social and environmental challenges within cities, organizations and neighbourhoods. Co-ilab curates a series of community, campus and corporate ideas jams with the citizen sector, students, city and business leaders, to identify and define the big sticky challenges facing communities and to further engage youth in generating creative solutions to transform these 'traditional liabilities into future assets'.
