Our Fellows in Residence host regular Community Calls for young people to connect with one another, share ideas and experiences and learn from guest presenters. Global Community Calls are announced on our social media pages and regional Community Call information is shared directly with project leaders in the relevant region.
All Peace First staff make themselves available to young people in weekly Office Hours, available by appointment, to provide support in areas of expertise related to their role. Our staff are experts in a range of topics, from fundraising to communications to web development. Project leaders who have received a mini-grant are eligible to sign up for Office Hours with Peace First staff.
Peace First Labs
In response to requests from partners and other young people to turn our online trainings and curricula into an in-person workshop, we created Peace First Labs: intensive workshops during which a trained Peace First facilitator guides young people through the process of designing their own social change project. Labs can be customized for length and the needs and experience level of the audience. After the Lab, young people will be left with part or all of a plan for their own project, which they can bring to PeaceFirst.Org for feedback and funding. We are now delivering Labs virtually due to COVID-19. We regularly collaborate with partners to host Labs in their community. To discuss scheduling and pricing of Labs, please contact the Fellow-in-Residence for your region.
Peace First offers a number of special programs available to young people in specific regions of the world. Please visit the regional page corresponding to where you live to view any Peace First programs specific to your community.
