2012 Social Innovation Lab Launch


The Boston College Social Innovation Lab has kicked off its second year of collaborative work in support of social service agencies wishing to develop new responses to social issues. Four agencies, South Shore Mental Health, Bridge over Troubled Waters, Old Colony YMCA, and Phoenix Charter Academy, have been selected to participate. All agencies will take part in five guided stages, beginning with identifying a social problem, working to develop a prototype, and ending with the pilot testing of at least one of the project components.
