“WAGiLabs… where kids and their ideas grow to change the world!”
Areas of our website are still under construction… especially links.
To provide funding, resources, mentorship, and a collaborative community for kids around the world to develop and implement their socially innovative ideas.
WAGiLabs is committed to funding 8000 kids’ ideas at $250 per idea in a global “Ideas for Humanity” Challenge. Then we will help create the community to bring the kids’ ideas into action.
Innovation is a new idea that helps overcome a challenge. Social innovation helps overcome a challenge that affects people. Maybe it’s a less expensive way of doing things or it gives a voice to the voiceless.
Put simply: Social innovation is making a change in the world for good. It’s doing better, together.
Our global What a Great Idea! (WAGiLabs) are unified by playing through the WAGi PlayBook, which is a series of activities to help kids cultivate an entrepreneurial mindset through experience, empowerment, and excitement. Each kid discovers the WAGi Ways through our three phases of play: Curiosity, Courage, and Connection.
