Looking expectantly at the year 2021, we hope it brings forth promised innovative developments in various sectors of the economy, particularly in the tech sector.
Interestingly, the year is already off to a good start as youngsters and teenagers are being included in the grand scheme of things.
Having realized the potentials lying dormant in young ones, particularly the Gen Z, We Are Family Foundation has announced that nominations are open for the Three Dot Dash Global Teen Leaders Program 2021.
Through this initiative, We Are Family Foundation aims to bring together the next group of teenage innovators, entrepreneurs, and social activists who are passionate about working together to create a better future for all.
About Three Dot Dash
A global initiative of the We Are Family Foundation, Three Dot Dash seeks to recognize and support the efforts of Global Teen Leaders across the globe who are actively working on projects that contribute to a more peaceful society.
Inspired by the life of Mattie J.T. Stepanek, the late 13-year-old poet, and peacemaker, Three Dot Dash is a unique year-round leadership and mentoring program targeted at teen leaders across the globe.
It also empowers teen leaders to showcase their innovative ideas leveraging various forms of media in order to boost their leadership potential, advance their projects, mobilize peers and exhibit their work to a global audience, spurring them to action.
