Hi Leah -- thank you for sharing this! I agree -- it's important to help young people speak out and participate in government, and the environment is an issue that disproportionately affects young people as well.

Sounds like you have a team together, which is awesome. Yay! So now the next step is to drill down on the issue you want to tackle and find the solution you want to put into action. I recommend using our 'Understand' tools (peacefirst.org/resources) to help you identify some of the key root causes and brainstorm solutions you can try.

Do you have any questions? I'm here to help!

Hi Leah,

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!

Best,
Adrian
