Announcing our Youth Mentor Challenge Winning Ideas
In our Youth Mentor Challenge we've been keen to explore how we might create intergenerational relationships – and we've been so inspired by the coming together of people from all walks of life, all over the world. When AARP Foundation approached us to launch a conversation around reverse mentorship we knew this would be a meaningful, engaging topic for our community.
As one member of our sponsor team said, "I am very impressed by the level of commitment and feedback between community members."
216 Research Contributions and
113 Ideas, we saw a dynamic conversation grow around the importance of generations connecting in new ways. And now we are poised for impact with some very exciting winning ideas!
After weighing in with the community throughout our Evaluation phase, the OpenIDEO Team met with our sponsors and experts to review our
Top 20 Ideas. We had a very rich conversation around the updates that the community made in the Refinement phase as well as exploring what it might look like to move these ideas forward into impact. Reviewing visuals, watching videos and brainstorming initial implementation milestones showed us just how hard the community worked around this topic.
And now we are honoured to announce the Winning Ideas of our Youth Mentorship Challenge! Congrats to our winners for all of their hard work and cheers, everyone, for being part of such an inspiring journey.
Now, let's head on over to the
Winning Ideas phase and check out these amazing ideas. Stay tuned for the opening of the Impact phase where new stories and learnings will be shared.
