Live-Blog: Pencils of Promise Leadership Institute
This Wednesday at 1:45, Pencils of Promise, which you might remember from their latest Schools4All Justin Bieber fundraising campaign, is hosting a Leadership Institute for the next generation of changemakers. And we will be live-blogging it.
The event is part of their Pop Up Summer Series, an array of seminars taking place in New York City from July 19th to August 17th. Topics range from social media to female empowerment to public speaking, but the goal is the same: educate, inspire and motivate high school students to become community leaders. PoP calls it their “49%“–the half of their mission that focuses on empowering a global generation of youth–and it is, in our opinion, the core of their ripple effect.
In case you’re not in New York, Dowser’s own global Millenial, Oscar Pocasangre, will be live-blogging the event. He wants to be your eyes and ears, so send him comments. Ask him questions. Here’s how to get in touch:
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Interact with the liveblog below or on our Facebook page.
- Send tweets with the hashtag #askdowser.
Oscar and the back-end Dowser team will receive any questions or comments sent through the above channels.
So watch, engage and share, and we’ll see you on Wednesday.
