GK Peace Keepers against violence

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.

GK All Day, Peacekeepers! I look forward to learning more about how you plan to stop bullying at our school. Was there a specific incident that inspired you to select this injustice?

Hi Jaspar! Thanks for sharing this project. My name is Fish, and I work with Peace First. We're really excited about the work Global Kids is doing (and this chapter in particular -- peer-led anti-bullying work is so important).

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.
