DOT is a youth-led movement of daring social innovators who have the tools, knowledge, and networks to create opportunities and transform their own communities.
We support youth to become innovators and leaders, and to create and apply digital solutions that have positive impact in their communities.
We believe in the power of youth-led innovation.
We believe that communities can be shaped by empowering youth to create sustainable initiatives inspired by community needs.
We believe that social innovation is accelerated when supported by digital technology.
We work with youth, the private sector, governments, and community-based organizations towards a collaborative vision of communities shaped by daring social innovators.
