Mission Statement

Service and Learning with a Global Peace Perspective - Service For Peace is an independent nonprofit organization providing service and learning opportunities through community projects which promote transformational and sustainable personal and community development around the world. We bring together people and partners of diverse faiths, ethnicities, nationalities, generations, and cultures to address profound social needs by discovering commonality and genuine appreciation for differences - all through service. We believe that peace begins with the inner peace fostered by service to others and that active cooperation provides the foundation and the real hope for peace.

Description

On the local community level, Service For Peace addresses the compelling need of all communities to provide meaningful service and learning opportunities in order to promote civic knowledge and engagement. In 15 nations throughout the world, the local SFP chapter selects a pressing local need and then develops a program to address that need. In South Korea, for example, SFP addresses the lack of services for the handicapped in its program, titled Culture, Games Leisure. Volunteers escort handicapped individuals to sporting and cultural events that they would otherwise not have an opportunity to attend. In the United States, SFP chapters conduct a series of projects throughout the year under the banner of Seasons of Service.
