About the Program
Future City Builders brings together 30 youth in each city to create and launch innovative ideas focused on water, housing, emergency preparedness and food security. These youth work together in a 30Lab, attending multiple workshops over the course of the program.
What is the 30Lab?
The 30Lab is a pop-up innovation lab for 30 local young urban influencers to come together over a series of workshops. In these workshops they will work together to create innovative solutions for their city.
Participants will then launch their ideas at a public event, where they will have the opportunity to secure up to $5,000 in seed funding to bring their project to life in their city.
