Interrobang's Mark Sylvester has been selected as one of thirty one mentors paired with the thirty one 2011 Global Teen Leaders [GTLs] from 15 countries on 5 continents, chosen by Three Dot Dash, a global initiative of the We Are Family Foundation® designed to recognize and support the efforts of Global Teen Leaders around the world who are actively working on projects that promote a more peaceful society by addressing issues related to basic human needs: food, water, health, shelter, safety, education and the environment.
Inspired by the late 13-year-old poet and peacemaker Mattie J.T. Stepanek, Three Dot Dash is an innovative year-round leadership and mentoring program that teaches teen leaders how to "tell their stories" effectively using various forms of media, current technology and distribution methods in order to accelerate their leadership potential, advance their projects, mobilize peers and amplify their work to broader audiences around the world to take action.
Three Dot Dash creates a sustainable worldwide network of individuals, corporations and nonprofit organizations to further the efforts of young leaders by harnessing the power of media, mentoring, and social networking to foster public participation around the globe.
Mark attended the Just Peace Summit 2011 in NYC, held March 25th thru April 1st. Mentor and GTL pairings were announced at the Summit on March 31st. Mark will be mentoring Jennifer, a 19 year old from Melbourne, Australia. Read about Jennifer’s project here.
