We Are Family Foundation Three Dot Dash Global Teen Leaders Program 2021

We Are Family Foundation Three Dot Dash Global Teen Leaders Program 2021

Deadline: January 13, 2021

Calling community shakers, movement leaders, innovators & game changers! The Global Teen Leaders Program 2021 is open for applications. After a year of uncertainty and adaptation, We Are Family Foundation looks forward to finding the next group of teenage social innovators, entrepreneurs and activists as we all work to make 2021 and beyond a future we all want to live in.

For the reasons that made 2020 feel unprecedented, We Are Family Foundation will continue their commitment to the health and safety of everyone by committing to hosting the 2021 Just Peace Summit in a virtual format. The 2021 Virtual Just Peace Summit (V-JPS2021) will take place between the months of June, July and August over a period of several weeks next year. Exact dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

All 2021 Global Teen Leaders (GTLs) will participate remotely from their homes. We Are Family Foundation will ensure each GTL has the technology needed to fully participate.
