Youth Impact Labs Program Overview: Mercy Corps exists to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression by helping people build secure, productive and just communities. At Mercy Corps, we seek to create transformative change by tackling societal problems. Mercy Corps’ Youth Impact Labs program is an initiative geared to address the problem of youth unemployment in East Africa and the Middle East.

Catalyzed by funding from Google.org, Mercy Corps’ Youth Impact Labs (YIL) identifies and tests creative, technology-enabled solutions to tackle global youth unemployment, accelerating job creation so every young person has the opportunity for dignified, purposeful work. The program focuses on vulnerable youth aged 15-35 in the Middle East and East Africa regions through its two strategic office locations, Nairobi and Jordan.

In Kenya, Impact Labs focuses on digital marketplaces and platforms that offer services to micro and small businesses; agricultural supply chain management; and digital work. Mercy Corps’ Youth Impact Labs seeks to build a strong regional pipeline of innovators ready to create high-impact, scalable employment opportunities across various markets – for today’s youth and generations to come.
