Mission Statement

Connecting People to Peace through Service - 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

The unique ability of SFP is helping diverse groups cross barriers of race, religion, creed, or national origin. We help communities organize meaningful service learning programs that promote local interests and build a culture of service. SFP ensures the most efficient and effective use of volunteers through preliminary community surveys determining and prioritizing compelling community needs. SFP interviews community leaders involved in education, public safety and health and human services to ensure programs are crafted to meet community wants needs.

SFP links service to education by involving secondary schools and institutions of higher education to create lasting community change and provide opportunities for intensive commitments to service that foster civic responsibility. To strengthen grass root coalitions SFP provides technical support and outcome-based evaluation measuring positive community change and helping to build capacity and sustainability. SFP continues to reach underserved populations by forming partnerships with agencies that serve such groups.
