Hi Makala,

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 an Accelerator, 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!

Best,
Adrian

Hi Makala! Super cool that you are teaching your second graders about how to be good citizens. Since you are under 25, we can support your project with mentors, tools, and funding.

I'd love to learn a little more about what the injustice is that you're trying to solve. If kids don't learn how to be good citizens -- what happens, and who does it harm?

We'd love to help you figure out how to implement this project. We have some resources that might be useful to you. Peace First used to work in schools, teaching social-emotional learning and civic engagement to students K-8. We have some lessons you can use with your second graders; check them out here:
