Welcome to Peace First--we're excited you've joined us! There are lots of ways to get started with creating positive change. This community will give you tools and relationships to help you get started and then see a project through. We can't wait to build with you!
I'm excited to learn more about what you're interested in. How do you want to make change? I'd love to hear your thoughts about injustices you notice in the world around you, or strengths you can share in your work for change.
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 start a project and 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!
One more thing: Can you help out another peacemaker by checking out their project and adding your thoughts? It's a great way to get to know other people and to share ideas. Here's one project you might be interested in: https://www.peacefirst.org/projects/bake-action-against-gun-violence
Please let me know if you have any questions! I'm looking forward to hearing from you. :) Adrian
