Peace First is a global incubator for youth led social change. We believe every young person - no matter where they come from - should be able to access the resources to make social change, so our programs are free and open to all young people between the ages of 13 and 25. By providing guidance for projects, mini-grants and regular support to young people who otherwise might not be able to access them, we expand the circle of youth changing the world. We trust young people as experts facing issues in their communities. We believe in their power to create impactful solutions and we provide global access to training, mentors and funding to turn their ideas into action. More than 27,000 young people from 164 countries have joined our digital platform. And through our global call to action, we have helped to create more than 13,000 youth-led social innovations impacting 100,000’s of people globally. We believe in youth leadership. 65% of our team is made up of young people who are exemplary social change leaders under the age of 26. These leaders, our Fellows-in-Residence, are accountable for program delivery in every region of the world - MENA, Sub-Saharan Africa, UK/Europe, Asia/Oceania, Latin America, US and Canada. But that’s not it - half of our Board is comprised of young people under the age of 30. Join the movement! #TogetherWeCreateSomething looks off?
