Deadline: September 15, 2018
The Global Teen Leaders Program 2019 is open for applications. Three Dot Dash is looking for the next Global Teen Leaders (GTLs) – those who have identified a problem and a solution, and have taken direct action. Three dot dash powers the most influential social entrepreneurs between the ages of 13 -19, who have found a solution or innovation to address a basic human need. Selected GTLs will attend the 10th Annual 2019 Just Peace Summit Will Take Place On… March 5-18, 2019 In New York City.
Global Teen Leaders are people who are doing extraordinary work that helps meet one or more of the basic human needs: food, water, health, shelter, education, safety and the environment — thus, creating a more peaceful society. They are carefully selected through a Nomination Process and invited to attend the Just Peace Summit and participate in the yearlong Three Dot Dash Initiative.
Do you know a young person tackling an issue related to education, the environment, health, safety, shelter or water? What about technology, innovation or human rights? Do them (AND THIS WORLD) a favor and Nominate today.
