Social Impact Lab: Housing Innovations in NYC

What does it look like to create an innovation solution to housing in New York City?  Join us as a social impact fellow for our first lab of 2018.  Teen fellows will spend the semester visiting housing innovations around NYC, researching and defining what is the “housing issue” that innovators are responding to in their work, identify resources available to create a solution, and then create (or hack!) a real-life innovation of his/her own.
