What It Is

Three Dot Dash® is a global initiative of WAFF that supports Global Teen Leaders (GTLs) around the world who are actively working on projects that promote a more peaceful society by addressing one or more 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 a yearlong leadership and mentoring program that teaches teen leaders how to effectively "tell their stories" during the Just Peace Summit using various forms of media, current technology and distribution methods to gain media attention and public support. Three Dot Dash creates a sustainable worldwide network of individuals, corporations and nonprofit organizations to support GTLs and foster public participation around the globe. The Three Dot Dash Just Peace Summits have brought together GTLs from 46 countries on 6 continents. The 2015 Just Peace Summit will take place March 23 — 29, 2015 in New York City.
