Digital Opportunity Trust (DOT)

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. Our growing network of 6,000 youth have created opportunities for 1 million people in communities across Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, and Indigenous Canada. Founded in 2001 and headquartered in Ottawa, Canada, we work with youth, the private sector, governments, and community-based organizations in 25 countries towards a collaborative vision of communities around the world shaped by young people.
