SEEDING CHANGE

PeaceJam is an international education program built around the lives and accomplishments of twelve Nobel Peace Laureates who work personally with youth to pass on the spirit, skills and wisdom they embody. The mission of PeaceJam is to create young leaders committed to positive change in themselves, their communities, and the world through the inspiration of Nobel Peace Laureates.

Education - engaging in a peace education curriculum that focuses on violence-prevention and issues of justice and oppression, as well as the life and work of Nobel Peace Laureates.

Inspiration - meeting and interacting with the Nobel Peace Prize recipient during the annual regional youth conference.

Action - focusing on service learning to help address social injustices and create life-long habits of community engagement.
We are looking for individuals willing to give their time and talent to the GLPJ as board members; who can participate in monthly meetings and special GLPJ functions and other community events at which PeaceJam is promoted.
