Lauren Van Krimpen (LVK)


Learning & Community Lead

As Learning and Community Lead for YLab, LVK weaves opportunities for the young people employed as YLab Associates to develop the skills, knowledge, mindsets and connections they need to reimagine and redesign systems.

She has dedicated her career to supporting the development of young people, their families, and their communities. LVK has been a high school Drama teacher, a receptionist, a Subway sandwich artist, a kindergarten teacher, a lion-cub chaperone (really), and a co-design convener innovating in the youth mental health sector. Her expertise comes alive at the intersection of her background in education, theatre, psychology, co-design, and lived experience. She thinks that coming together to learn through play, curiosity, and shared humanity is the key to solving tough problems.
