The Changemaking Opportunity Hub
The Peace First Opportunity Hub creates opportunities for young people around the world to support and join youth-led social change projects in the Peace First community. In a bid to change the narrative of the leader-centric social change model, we are offering young people who would like to contribute to youth-led projects that excites them the opportunity to do so, without necessarily being project leaders.
While this aligns with our goal to build a movement of 2.5 million young people who are leading social change in their communities, it also presents a very cost effective way of scaling the impact of the projects that we fund across the world, and bring us closer to meeting our aspirations of radically advancing equity in the youth civic development space.
Young people in our community can now engage with already existing projects by:
- Supporting projects through direct action - such as signing a petition, sharing a message on social platforms, taking a specific action that will advance the goals of the project, and potentially donating.
- Joining youth-led projects, either by accepting an open role/recurring task as a volunteer, or by expanding a project to their community in collaboration with the project leader.
We have selected two projects to launch the Hub. check them out below and stay tuned and watch this space for information about how you can get your project on the Hub too.
