Thanks Meena, I have updated the concept with a simple example. I hope this helps clarify the basics of the process. I got excited and included quite a bit of detail. Thank you for the suggestion.

Sasha,
I love this idea. It offers one of the best solutions I have read for, as you put it "bridging the gaps" of the youth unemployment problem. The localized nature of the Lab provides the flexibility to meet each communities specific needs and while still leveraging technology to get global perspective and resources!

Amy commented on What Are My Options?

I agree with the idea that youth unhappiness partially stems from the overwhelming amount of choices - I think it is compounded by an increase in what they think is "expected" of them based on the comparisons that are now so easily at their fingertips with social media. I love you idea of helping set a baseline of what youth should expect and help them prepare for getting on the right path.
