Welcome 2013 Voices of Our Future Correspondents

We believe that you have what it takes to bring the untold stories and solutions of your communities to a global audience.

The next five months are going to be a time of incredible growth and empowerment. You will be connecting with 30 other amazing grassroots women leaders from countries around the world. You will also be connecting with your Mentors and become part of a strong Triad! This Group is meant to be a safe space to connect all of you, Correspondents and Mentors, so do not hesitate to start communicating!

Welcome Mentors to the Voices of Our Future training program. As women who have committed your time, passion and enthusiasm to providing guidance to the 2013 Voices of Our Future Correspondents, we thank you. Your contribution will help these amazing women overcome the challenges they face to completing this program and achieving their personal visions for change! You are part of the dynamic team which will make this year a success.

This group provides a space for you to access information, exchange ideas and support each other throughout the five-month long journey. Please feel free to contribute your perspectives, write about your experience as a Vision Mentor or Editorial Mentors and pose questions to the group. To help us keep this group effective and focused, please only post items which are related to the program. Any non-program stories (which we would love to hear) should be posted to your personal journal.
