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 believe in the power of youth-led innovation.

  • We believe that communities can be shaped by empowering youth to create sustainable initiatives inspired by community needs.

  • We believe that social innovation is accelerated when supported by digital technology.

What we do

Digital Opportunity Trust is a global network of more than 5,000 young leaders who have transformed the lives of 1 million people around the world. We support young women and men to become innovators and leaders, and to create and apply digital solutions that have positive social impact in their communities.

Young people have experience, passion, and insight rooted in the needs and challenges of their communities. DOT programs support youth to deepen their understanding of those needs and challenges, and provide them with the tools, knowledge, networks, and support to launch sustainable social initiatives that create positive change.

Youth develop entrepreneurial mindsets and communication, teamwork, decision-making, and digital skills. Their initiatives create a ripple effect of opportunities for themselves and others, leading to jobs, businesses, sustainable social and economic change, and transformed, resilient communities.

DOT Jordan is mobilizing the potential of young people and the power of creative technology in Jordan.

We are addressing the twin challenges of youth unemployment and limited opportunities for sustainable economic growth in Jordan by supporting youth to solve pressing challenges in their local communities and establish sustainable social enterprises.

We’re doing this in three ways: by supporting young women and men to become Young Social Innovators and providing seed funding, networks, and mentors for their promising innovations; by establishing Digital Creativity Labs throughout the country; and by convening NGOs throughout Jordan to collaborate on achieving #REACH2025, Jordan’s technology action plan.

Young Social Innovators

We work with young college and university graduates who have the passion and will to create positive social change.

DOT Jordan’s Young Social Innovators are equipped with the skills, motivation, and knowledge to create and apply digital solutions that solve pressing challenges, and have a positive impact in their community.

Supported by mentors, Young Social Innovators test and implement their social innovations and social enterprises in the Digital Creativity Labs, where they  also offer digital skills and innovation training to the local community during their residency as Young Social Innovators.

Digital Creativity Labs

We are transforming Jordan’s community-based Knowledge Stations into Digital Creativity Labs that use digital tools to inspire innovation, research, and solve pressing challenges in local communities. Our goal is to refresh the Knowledge Stations as vibrant, creative, and digital community centers.

Our Young Social Innovators work out of the Digital Creativity Labs, offering skills training to the local community in partnership with a number of technology-sector partners,  preparing the next generation of youth with foundational innovation, entrepreneurship and digital skills.

#REACH2025

DOT Jordan is convening the first Digital Coordination Group in Jordan, chaired by the Ministry of ICT. The Digital Coordination Group brings together NGOs working in the areas of youth, gender, and digital inclusion to collaborate on common goals, meet emerging needs, and work towards achieving #REACH2025, Jordan’s technology action plan.

DOT Jordan’s programming is undertaken with the financial support of the Government of Canada, provided through Global Affairs Canada.

DOT Jordan is working closely with the Ministry of ICT to address national technology and sustainability priorities. Together, our work will revitalize the Knowledge Stations at a national scale, familiarize communities with e-Government services, improve communities’ access to and training in technology, and create a digital infrastructure that supports #REACH2025 and bridges the digital divide.

In partnership with NITC and other leading technology sector partners, DOT Jordan will revitalize Knowledge Stations as Digital Creativity Labs by redesigning spaces to promote creativity and innovative thinking, incorporating new programming on digital skills that will prepare youth for modern job markets, creating a community of youth who are building solutions for needs in the local community, and providing new technology and digital tools so youth and communities can gain hands-on experience technology.
