Social Impact Lab

Leverage the power of business for good

Get hands-on impact training

The Social Impact Lab is an experiential learning space where we generate positive impact, both locally and globally, through sustainable business concepts. Expanding on Lynn’s longstanding citizenship, cultural and career prep programs, you can gain social impact training, take part in experiential learning opportunities and network with industry professionals. 

We’re bringing a whole new field of social impact to Lynn ... But we’re not only going to be part of the movement, we’re going to define it.
