Peace First In Transition

Embracing Evolution for Greater Impact

Throughout our history, Peace First has continuously evolved, adapting our mission and approach to meet the needs and aspirations of young people. Our commitment has always been to empower youth to lead change in their communities and beyond. Today, we find ourselves at a pivotal moment, compelled by the dynamic landscape of youth leadership and the ever-changing challenges they face.

From our beginnings with the Peace Games era, where we focused on promoting nonviolence and conflict resolution in schools, to the Peace First Prize era, which celebrated and supported young people making impactful contributions to their communities, we have consistently transformed to meet the needs of the times. Each era marked a significant shift in our approach, reflecting our ability to innovate and respond to the changing landscape of youth empowerment.


Now, in the current Peace First era, we continue to pioneer approaches that many have looked to for leadership. The world of social change is rapidly evolving, and young people demand innovative, nuanced approaches that truly resonate with their realities. It is clear that to remain effective and relevant, we must once again adapt and lead by example.

The challenges and opportunities faced by young leaders today are vastly different from those of the past. It is crucial that we listen to their voices, understand their experiences, and respond to their call for action. Our goal is to foster an environment where youth can thrive, innovate, and drive meaningful change. This introspection and realignment are not just necessary steps but an exciting opportunity to reimagine how we serve and uplift the next generation of leaders.

As we navigate this transformative period, we are exploring new models that will allow us to continue making a significant impact in a way that is sustainable and forward-thinking. The market today demands organizations that can not only adapt but also lead by doing something radically different. Our aim is to inspire other organizations to rethink what youth changemaking means and to join us in creating a future that is both innovative and impactful.

In the coming weeks and months, we will engage in deep reflection and dialogue with our community, partners, and young leaders to shape a renewed vision for Peace First. We believe that by embracing this period of transformation, we can continue to be a powerful force for good, championing youth leadership and social change.

Thank you for your ongoing support and commitment to our mission. Together, we can build a brighter future where young people are at the forefront of creating lasting, positive impact in the world.
