GK Peace Keepers against violence
A Peacemaking Project by Jaspar L.
What is the injustice we are solving?
At PS/IS 109 in Brooklyn, we have a problem with bullying. We see that bullying can lead to violence and so we want to stop bullying at our school so we have less violence in our community. - 6th grade Global Kids Peace Keepers
From Action Plan to ExecutionAntoineta M. 24 April 2018 12:13 Peacekeepers have been using a timeline which has an outline of phases young people can use when doing a youth leadership project. As of today, the Peacekeepers group will be taking their action plan and brainstorming ways they will implement and execute it throughout the school and with the schools administration.

I'd love to connect with you and other Global Kids staff to see how we could support and empower youth-led projects like this across your network. Can we connect? [email protected]
Regarding this project -- sounds like the young people have identified a serious injustice and want to take action to solve it! I hope you'll check out our toolkits, which can help them create an insight (a theory of change grounded in empathy) and a plan for what they'll do next. You can download them here: https://www.peacefirst.org/resources
I wanted to let you know that we can only directly serve projects led by young people 13-24, so while the team is more than welcome to use our tools, we can't offer a $250 mini-grant. However, we'd be able to offer more intensive support to Global Kids chapters with students in late middle or high school!
Looking forward to hearing more from you, Jaspar.

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!
