We are excited to welcome 26 outstanding students from the GNML Online program to Burlington, Vermont today!

During the Youth TechCamp students will combine the information and skills developed during the online program with new information from Youth TechCamp sessions to create individualized Strategic Action Plans (SAPs) for how they will teach others how to use social media for social change upon returning home.

Students will gain valuable leadership, training, public speaking and presentation skills while learning about advanced social media tools and platforms. These skills and tools will help them as they implement their SAPs during the follow-on component of GNML.

Student Comment:



Oh My Goodness! I have just started to work on my session no: 4, and it is awesome. The more I get to know, the more it makes me curious. It seems like I can be the hero of this world by the help of social media. This has been a favorite session of mine on the Third Planet. Thank you sir Rob and Ma'm Stacie for letting us to know more about social media by this session no: 4.

Becoming an entrepreneur? | uk yep | 4 Oct 2012

Business eh? Who would have thought that me – Miss H.O. (the most confused and indecisive person in the world- actually applying to be in the Guinness world records) came back from AMERICA (yep.. I went to the states did I not say?) so sure that her future lied in the hands of marketing and then owning a multimillionaire business (and now you know why I was smiling in my sleep).

My Future: How a 2 week trip to America changed my plans for the future. | uk yep | 4 Oct 2012

After going to America in the summer I found that my view on starting a business has changed drastically. I must admit before the trip I was intrigued in the business world and thought extremely highly of it. I never saw my self being a business women, as my aim in life was to become a paramedic. However, the two weeks I spent touring businesses has 100% changed my opinion. I now know that just because my passion is medicine, I don't have to limit my self to it. I realised that I can start my own business, after university, around medicine and emergency help.
