So Much Love In The Room

March 27, 2012

Chilling with some 2012 GTL's

I'll spend most of this week with our 2012 Global Teen Leaders (GTLs) during our Just Peace Summit. It's a function of one of the We Are Family Foundation's initiatives called Three Dot Dash. Teens from all over the world come together for a year long mentoring program. The goals are sustainability, scalability, and media (communications) training to benefit their individual home charity programs.

Since I'm not a program facilitator I get to pop into every course, take notes and answer the GTL's questions. The one thing that I overwhelmingly observe regardless of the session is: the cooperation of the group as a whole and there's So Much Love In The Room.
