What is #Rebuild100?

#Rebuild100 is a campaign to support young people between the ages of 13-25 across the United States to rebuild their communities through social action in the first 100 days of the Biden administration. If you’re between the ages of 13 to 25, signing up to join means you’ll receive resources and coaching from Peace First about how to start a social action project in your community and invitations to attend special events, workshops, and community calls for young changemakers. If you’re ready to put your idea into action, we’ll invest up to $250 to cover your project costs.

 

Who is eligible to participate?

Any young person between the ages of 13-25 with ties to the United States can join the challenge. We also invite adult allies to sign up for updates on opportunities to support young people participating in #Rebuild100.

 

What does the Rebuild100 program for young people look like?

The application period for #Rebuild100 runs from February 3rd through April 30th. However, we’ll offer support for program participants through late summer 2021. Through #Rebuild100, participants can access:

  • Digital resources and training to start a social action project
  • Personalized coaching and mentorship from Peace First staff
  • Monthly community calls with other young changemakers across the United States
  • Workshops and skill-building sessions led by seasoned youth activists and organizers
  • Invitation to join the #Rebuild100 digital community for young people
  • Up to $250 in mini grant funding to implement a social action project
  • Opportunities to share your story and project on a global platform 

 

I want to do something to help my community, but I’m not sure how to get started. 

Lots of young people care deeply about what’s happening in our world, but the barriers to get started can be challenging. Luckily, Peace First offers a full curriculum of activities and resources to help you identify an injustice that you care about, understand how that injustice impacts people in your community and design and implement your own plan to create change.

What kinds of projects do you support?

In the past, we’ve supported young people to lead anti-bullying campaigns, organize mutual aid networks, plan protests, host digital trainings, start nonprofits, create digital art collectives, launch justice-oriented small businesses, design new products, and much more. The sky’s the limit -- and we don’t think any project is too big or too small. However, Peace First projects must be truly youth-led. Read more about our eligibility guidelines here.

 

What is the time commitment for #Rebuild100?

For young people who want to join the community, the time commitment is flexible. There aren’t any mandatory requirements to be involved. #Rebuild100 is a resource for you! If you sign up to join, we’ll send you an email with information about how to start a project in your community with resources and guidance from our team at www.peacefirst.org. We’ll also share invitations to join the #Rebuild100 digital community and monthly cohort calls and skill-building workshops through summer 2021. We encourage you to join as many events as you’d like.
