We believe that young people have the power to change the world. At Social Incubation Center, we empower young social volunteers from youth under 25 years old with the resources they need to make a difference. Whether it’s starting a non-profit or encouraging friends to do good, our programs help youth develop the skills and confidence to become innovative and powerful influencers of change and the next wave of leaders in social entrepreneurship. The Social Incubation Lab provided an intensive program for youth under 25 years old who are looking to take action and deepen their understanding of a social issue they’re passionate about. This program will focus on the ideation stage of creating a social initiative, giving participants the opportunity to brainstorm an idea for a social project, enterprise, service or product, and develop their leadership skills. Budding social volunteers will become experts on their chosen issue while building the necessary skills to take their world-changing ideas further. This program empowers young social volunteers to develop and launch their own social enterprise, giving them access to helpful resources and mentorship. They will also have the unique opportunity to expand their networks with like-minded people and take the next step in making their world-changing idea into a reality.


We promote youth-led social initiatives by guiding them right from the stage when social problems are articulated and the possible solutions are proposed, to ensure that these initiatives create impactful and sustainable solutions at appropriate scale. The process also provides social opportunities for experimentation and exploration of newer solutions and methods. The major activities undertaken by the Social Incubation Centre are identification of volunteer, creation of projects, mentoring, seed funding, networking, resources. The initiatives remain under active incubation support for one year, They are encouraged and supported to  become independent and self-supporting.
