How do students refine Peace Project ideas in what feels like an age of chaos? Small teams of student leaders—paired with a teacher, service club advisor, or community mentor who has completed Guiding Young Peacebuilders—are able to prototype, test, and implement Peace Projects based on ideas generated through My Peacebuilder Foundations.

Questions that are answered during the experience are:

Enrollment Starting Soon

  • What type of conflict or violence are you addressing?

  • What project type are you addressing?

  • What are your SMART goals?

  • If your project could be repeated or replicated, what do you hope will change?

  • What are your team agreements for working together?

Completion of these Peace Projects leads to an advanced certification that supports students in applications for competitive awards, scholarships, and recognition. The highest quality Peace Projects are eligible to be featured on the YPA online platform.
