We are so excited that you've raised your hand to join Peace First in building a global community of young people dedicated to creating a better world! Your support will ensure that the tools and resources we create will be valuable for all young peacemakers fighting injustice in their communities.
We've received an overwhelming number of responses to our call for young people and we're so inspired by your enthusiasm! There are young people from 17 different countries represented in the community and your reasons for getting involved are incredibly motivating. Check out a few below:
I am interested in helping to spark a global movement of young peacemakers because our global future depends on it. Our generation thinks about how to create change differently, so we need to be at the front leading.
There are a lot of injustices around the world that are swept under the rug. The youth holds the future in their hand and in order to resolve injustices and conflicts for a better tomorrow, we should all play our part. Even if its small.
In the coming weeks we'll begin sending updates on stories from young peacemakers around the world and opportunities for you to participate in our design process to shape this peacemaking movement. Thank you for joining forces with us and we look forward to an exciting partnership!
