Support Global Youth Leadership
The needs of young changemakers are evolving with the unprecedented challenges facing every community around the world. Peace First is committed to building responsive program models that meet young people where they are to enable access to the resources and support they need to address these challenges directly, whatever they may be.
No matter the challenges happening in the world—the COVID-19 pandemic, inequity related to race and gender, political upheaval— young people are developing creative solutions to address the issues they’re facing, in their communities and globally, right now. They are not waiting for politicians and adults to save them, they are actively building the world they want to live in today, not someday.
In the past year, young people have created 3,517 projects in 113 countries, impacting over 300,000 people globally. From Lagos to Rabat, from Kathmandu to Birmingham and from Boston to Oaxaca, the demand for digital tools, community support, funding and mentorship is greater than ever. Your support means we can continue to provide these resources to young people who are ready to make change right now.
