What Young Peacebuilders (YP) Does
YP develops partnerships, research, projects and tools that nurture peacebuilding passion and skill in children and youth in contexts impacted by armed conflict. In this way YP helps prevent and end cycles of violence. We also help design effective child and youth peacebuilding projects and research for others.
