The Global Co Lab Network created Teens Dream to encourage teens globally to connect and be change-makers, by engaging them in a fun, simple video contest, events, and virtual mtg rooms for action, called SDG Hubs.  Teens Dream is the flagship project of the Global Co Lab Network!

Volunteer mentors and stakeholders have networked and supported hundreds of teens globally from some 50 countries. Join us and be a change-maker!

Our Teens Dream Engagers!

Teens Dream Engagers:

Teens Dream is a project of the Global Co Lab and is run by teen and adult mentors who both judge the annual video contest, lead our SDG Hubs, help organize and speak at our annual celebration, and support the Co Lab’s projects in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia region.
