We seek to partner with youth-oriented community groups and organizations to identify local youth leaders, give them practical tools to develop self-mastery, and provide them with opportunities to serve and take responsibility for the welfare of their community. Our program graduates become true peace builders and leaders who foster positive change and create sustainable peace in the community.

After graduation, ongoing follow-up sessions bring the community together to share ideas for collective improvement. We then provide additional training that enables these new youth leaders to administer the program themselves and to serve by taking responsibility for their collective welfare.
