The Challenge


We know young people everywhere are ready to be called on to make real change. That is why we have created the Peace First Challenge, an international campaign that calls for young people around the world to identify an injustice and develop a solution using a peacemaking lens.

Young people, ages 13-24, accepting the Peace First Challenge have access to a digital peacemaking platform, can become recipients of self-service tools, enter a supportive community, and receive up to $250 to support their peacemaking projects.
