The famous John Lennon song, “Give Peace a Chance” is being taken to heart by the innovative foundation PeaceJam. For over 18 years, the global initiative has teamed up with Nobel Peace Laureates to mentor and inspire a young generation of peacemakers. Active in over 5 different continents, PeaceJam is geared to youth ages 5 to 25 and offers a variety of programs, curriculum and training to those interested in making the world a more peaceful place to inhabit. The foundation has already been nominated eight times for a Nobel Peace Prize, and includes such luminary members like Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama. Understanding the need to mobilize a new generation of youth leaders, the foundation has partnered with Google and others to create the One Billion Acts of Peace Campaign. The ambitious initiative focuses on ten key issues that need attention, with a call to action inviting anyone from around the globe to submit their individual acts of peace or join an existing project with the same goals. With PeaceJam, the youth of today are leading the way with experienced mentors to a more peaceful future, one step at a time.
