Teens Dream is exploring virtual Dream Hubs, a safe virtual space for teens globally to support each other, share ideas, network and get inspired in working to address the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)!
What are Dream Hubs?
Dream Hubs are a virtual space for teens anywhere on the planet to talk with other teens and selected adults who can mentor them around their dreams and aspirations in working on the UN SDGs. Adults with an expertise in the Dream Hub topic may be asked to join the conversation to mentor teens, as appropriate. Dream Hubs will have their own page on the Teens Dream website and utilize video and other chat forums to engage collaboratively in their areas of interest.
The first two areas of focus are 1) education (SDG number 4) and arts for the SDGs. Let us know if you are interested in starting a Dream Hub on one of the SDGs.
How do they work?

Vetted Teens Dream adults will manage the Dream Hubs with Teen Ambassadors who have been involved with Teens Dream — the Dream Hubs will be run primarily by teens with adult supervision. Dream Hubs will have sponsoring mentors affiliated with each of them, experts in the area of focus.
