Program Return FAQ

Program Return

When will Peace First programs return?

All program offerings will return by August 1st, at which point young people will be able to submit projects, receive feedback and coaching on their projects, as well as submit mini-grant applications for processing.  


What will happen during July?

Peace First will focus on responding to the existing projects on our platform during July. If you have created a project between February 1 - July 1, 2022, expect to hear from the programs team by July 30th.

We will also be hosting a series of events for our community of young people to share updates about the work we’ve been doing as an organization over the past few months and answer any questions they may have. 


I have submitted a project before the program pause, when can I expect to hear back from Peace First?

The Peace First program team will make sure to respond to all the existing projects on the platform after the organizational break. Existing projects on the platform should receive a response between July 11th - July 31st. 


When can I apply again to receive support in coaching and mini-grants? 

Young people will be able to submit new projects by August 1st, 2022. 


What happened during the pause? You were gone for a few months!

  1. Program redesign

Peace First has conducted a redesign project to evaluate our program offerings and to work with our community of young people and other stakeholders to improve our program offerings to be more inclusive and representative of our global community. During this process, we have worked with different stakeholders to update our theory of change, program offerings and their internal structure and staffing model.


  1. New Platform discovery

We also completed a discovery project that resulted in a road map for the development of a new digital platform for our young people. We can't wait to share more during the information sessions. Make sure to register below.
