The Project Hub is an incubator for educational projects and part of the "UPY Impacta" program. It was created in 2020 for young people to design and implement social projects aimed at improving Quality Education (SDG 4) for adolescents and young people between 15 and 24 years old.
More than 100 young people have been trained to design projects and 20 of them have been able to design and/or implement projects guided by the UPY team. Therefore, from 2020 to 2021 there were two projects: "Woment 4 Change" and "Aprendiendo a Segregar" (Learning to Segregate). Currently, 19 young people are completing the course phase. Likewise, 11 young people are in the design phase of new projects. At the end of the design phase, UPY grants the winner of the Seed Fund Contest with an amount of money to use it to implement the project. You can choose to be part of the PH if you are a member of UPY.
