Peace Education and Action for Impact is a new initiative developed by World BEYOND War (WBW) in collaboration with the Rotary Action Group for Peace (RAGFP). This project is aimed at preparing young peacebuilders to advance positive change in themselves, their communities, and beyond. The project will start in September and span 3 and a half months. It is built around six weeks of online peace education followed by eight weeks of peace project mentoring and will involve intergenerational collaboration and cross-cultural learning across the Global North and South.

To find out more about this project, and ways to get involved, please join WBW and the RAGFP on April 5 for this info session. All are welcome, which will also be a time for networking and sharing.

These sessions are especially for young people (18-35) interested in going through the six week online peace education course and the subsequent eight weeks of peace project mentoring. These sessions are also for adults interested in providing scholarships for young people to participate in this project and/or being trained to act as mentors for the youth-led, community-oriented, peace projects.

During these sessions, we'll discuss the need for the project as a whole, what participants will learn and do, and anticipated outcomes for the project at the individual and community levels. We'll also share what potential partners need to know and do to bring this work to their community. Please note that there will an opportunity during this webinar for Q & A.
