Peace Leaders is a global leadership initiative that empowers young people who are most affected by violence and marginalisation. We believe all young people can develop their innate abilities through their passions to make the world more peaceful. We provide youth with tools and knowledge so they can shape their own local community and future.
More About Us
In 2017, the Peace Leaders program was developed out of Fryshuset’s 35 years of practical experience in working with Swedish youth. The idea is based on the conviction that building peaceful society means empowering youth who are closest to the problems of peace and security.
As of December 2019 Peace Leaders has trained more than 100 young people from 20 countries. The projects they have implemented in their communities after the course have reached over 1.000 children and youth directly tackling issues of violence and security.
The leadership program is designed for young people who are motivated to make a change in their communities.
Participants get skills and knowledge on managing teams & project, communication, conflict mediation and peace building.
