Are you between the ages of 18 and 25?
Have you led a successful social change project in your community, working alongside others towards a just and peaceful future?
If you are passionate about youth-led change, love mobilizing and empowering others to act, and want to be part of a global team that helps young people make a difference right now, we invite you to apply to the Fellowship-in-Residence – a year-long, paid program for emerging social change leaders who want to make an impact by leading Peace First’s support to young people in their part of the world.
Peace First is currently hiring Fellows-in-Residence in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East & North Africa.
At Peace First, we support young people to create peacemaking projects – projects that address an injustice (a social problem that causes harm or creates inequity, such as violence, poverty, or racism) in their community through compassion, courage, and collaborative leadership – on our digital platform, PeaceFirst.Org. We take them through a 5-stage journey to choose an injustice, understand why it occurs, plana project that will make a difference, act on their plan, and reflect on their work. We target our recruitment efforts to young people who aren’t often called on to be peacemakers – those who might not otherwise have access to resources. Along the way, we provide access to digital design tools, feedback and mentors, a global community of young people, and $250 mini-grants to support their work. For young people who are interested in scaling their work, we offer Peace First Accelerators, which allow them to access intensive coaching and additional funding to sustain and grow their projects, and the Peace First Prize, a $25,000 award that allows young people to scale their work globally.
