Domestic and Sexual Violence

A Peacemaking Project by sophie c.

What is the injustice we are solving?

We are going to raise awareness of the problem of Domestic and Sexual Violence and creating after school activities for the youth in the area to participate in. We will be raising awareness through posters, public speakers, and a bathroom safe space tip box. The after school program, bring the youth of the area to play sports or do arts with the teams and groups at our high school, we will create are to help build a bond with the community and help kids find activities they like or a role model.

Hi Sophie,

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 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!

Best,
Adrian

Hi Sophie!

Thanks so much for posting this project. You have lots of great ideas for how to build deeper and safer community where you live. I'm excited to learn more and watch this project get started!

I encourage you to check out the tools and resources we have available (you can see them on the journey in your dashboard or at this link: https://www.peacefirst.org/peacemaking-tools) as you keep working on this project. Also, here are some additional projects focused on sexual and domestic violence on our site--it could be helpful to connect with them and share ideas:

I also wanted to let you know about an opportunity coming up soon. While you can create a project at any time to be eligible for a $250 mini-grant, if you submit your compassionate insight by February 28th, you can participate in the Peace First Challenge with other young people from around the country, and can apply to attend a spring Peace First Accelerator Conference!

I hope all this is helpful! Let me know if you have any questions, and how we can support you!

Best,
Adrian
