What Young Peacebuilders (YP) Does

Young Peacebuilders nurtures peacebuilding passion and skills in violence-affected children and youth.  We do this through partnerships, research, projects, and tools that help young people build peace in their own communities and abroad. In this way YP helps prevent and end cycles of violence. We also help design effective child and youth peacebuilding projects, tools, and research for others. Our goal is to see a major shift in the dominant method of addressing contemporary conflicts toward investing in young people as peacebuilders.
