Toronto’s first skills accelerator for people living in poverty.

About The Prosper Lab

The Prosper Lab builds safe, inclusive learn-by-doing environments that enable real-life learning opportunities to help those facing barriers to employment to rise above poverty.

BUILDING A STARTUP TO BUILD SKILLS & CONFIDENCE

HOW WE DO IT

Collaboratively, participants are able to work together to build skills, make business decisions, take the lead in all aspects of the business and most importantly, work through the unexpected challenges that they face along the way.

1. DEVELOP EMPATHY & A SENSE OF BELONGING

2. LAY THE FOUNDATION FOR OUR STARTUP

3. BUILD & SELL PRODUCTS THAT WE'RE PROUD OF

4. SHOWCASE OUR GROWTH TO THE COMMUNITY

WHAT WE'VE LEARNED

Building a business is TOUGH. Unexpected challenges pop up every week, ones that can’t be simulated in classroom-based learning. The Prosper Lab’s experiential learning model encourages experimentation, fosters a “fail forward” mindset and a belief that as a team, we can overcome any challenge.

HANDCRAFTED PRODUCTS THAT WE ARE PROUD OF

We get hands-on to build & sell products to practice teamwork and communication skills, while building self confidence and pride.
