Welcome to Peace First! We’re really glad you’ve joined the growing ranks of adults supporting youth leadership for positive change. It’s good to have you with us!
We’d love to know more about what brings you to this space (in addition to the fabulous young humans that are here)! Do you work with young people, or are you looking to connect with youth leaders? Do you know any youth who want to take action on an issue in their community, or who are interested in making a change, but aren’t sure where to start? We’d love to equip them with the tools they need for change leadership.
Please encourage any young people you know in your life to get started thinking about a project--while they can create a project at any time to be eligible for a $250 mini-grant, if they start a project and submit their compassionate insight by February 28th, they 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 a young peacemaker by checking out their project and adding your thoughts? It’s a great way to connect with Peace First youth and exchange 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!
