Leadership Embassy Empowerment Academy

A Peacemaking Project by Hannah J.

What is the injustice we are solving?

We want to connect with middle schoolers across our city of Buffalo to make our city--and the world-- a better place! We host leadership workshops and run service projects to teach kids the importance of standing up, speaking out, taking initiative, and giving back.

Hi Hannah,

We wanted to let you know that we are extending the deadline for active projects to apply for a Mini-Grant during this Peace First Challenge to April 15th. You can apply for a mini-grant anytime, but meeting the Challenge deadlines will make you eligible for additional opportunities.

If you do not require a mini-grant to complete your project, you can remain eligible for the Accelerator by completing your project and Reflection before the May 31st deadline! If you submit your project plan by April 15th, we'll be sure to provide you with feedback by April 21st to support you with carrying out the plan.

If you are still in early stages of planning, you are also welcome to apply for a mini-grant at a later date -- although you may not be eligible for some of our larger opportunities, the opportunity for funding and support is always there.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and if we can help in any way!

Hannah -- thanks for posting your project. This is so exciting! There is so much positive power in peer mentorship, and it's great that you're working to give other young people opportunities to be involved and build a culture of civic engagement in Buffalo.

We've helped young people around the country grow similar projects and would love to help yours! What are your plans for the spring? Are there any things that feel challenging about your work right now? What can we help with?
