Youth Radio’s Mobile Action Lab networks emerging entrepreneurs, social change agents, and top technologists with Oakland-based youth participants who propose, develop, and market online and mobile apps. Projects tackle topics that youth have identified as addressing a pressing need in their communities-for example, apps that re-distribute free healthy produce across urban neighborhoods, improve youth-police relations, and spark youth expression while re-imagining the sound of news.

Youth Radio’s Mobile Action Lab networks emerging entrepreneurs, social change agents, and top technologists with Oakland-based youth participants who propose, develop, and market online and mobile apps. Projects tackle topics that youth have identified as addressing a pressing need in their communities-for example, apps that re-distribute free healthy produce across urban neighborhoods, improve youth-police relations, and spark youth expression while re-imagining the sound of news. The Lab will mobilize participation through incentives such as access to experts, customized ringtones, and community competitions. The Mobile Action Lab was formed to enable young people not just to use but to create the kinds of digital tools that increasingly determine who knows what, how knowledge travels, and what makes change possible.
