Women Worldwide joins the Three Dot Dash Coalition to Find Global Teen Leaders
The Women Worldwide Initiative has partnered with the We Are Family Foundation as part of their Three Dot Dash Coalition this year. Three Dot Dash is a global movement to generate action and create a more peaceful society by empowering Global Teen Leaders who are doing extraordinary work to solve our biggest global problems. The values and vision of Three Dot Dash are in line with TWWI’s belief in the power of girls and young people to generate community change.
The Three Dot Dash Global Teen Leaders (GTLs) – 30 changemakers between the ages of 13 and 19 – are carefully selected and invited each year to participate in the yearlong Three Dot Dash® initiative from nominations by community organizations such as The Women Worldwide Initiative and other qualified organizations that are members of the Three Dot Dash Coalition. The We Are Family Foundation brings them together to New York City to attend the Just Peace Summit and pairs them with incredible mentors for one year. This year’s summit will be held from April 7 – 13, 2014.
WE ARE SEARCHING FOR TEEN CHANGEMAKERS 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.
