What you'll learn

While students are completing My Peacebuilder Foundations, advisors, community sponsors, and teachers have access to Guiding Young Peacebuilders, a course that links essential elements of My Peacebuilder Foundations with additional content, including:

  • The fundamentals of “positive peace”

  • Tips on developing successful Peace Projects

  • Code of Conduct guidelines and principles for working with Peace Project teams

  • Issues that interest young people

  • Rethinking peace: moving communities beyond the absence of violence and toward long-term resilience and peace

  • How to create comfortable virtual and live spaces for young people

  • Using technology for team communications and management

After completing Guiding Young Peacebuilders, mentors can work independently with local project teams. There’s also the option to apply to become a mentor for Leading Peace Project Teams, which includes a short training and facilitated support for mentors and student leaders who want to guide student clubs and groups to deliver effective Peace Projects.
