Three Dot Dash Global Teen Leaders Program 2017 – New York City, USA (Fully-funded)
Deadline: September 16, 2016
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. They will attend the Just Peace Summit, which will take place from March 10-17 in New York City, United States.
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.
