Get Involved!

There are so many issues in the world today. But the good news is, there are a lot of people to help solve them!

Are you interested in getting involved and making a change in the place you live?

PeaceJam is an international organization that brings youth together with Nobel Peace Prize laureates (winners) like the Dalai Lama from Tibet, Arch Bishop Desmod Tutu from South Africa, Jody Williams for the USA, and many more! The youth learn about the lives of the laureates, create service projects, and then get a chance to share their project with the person they studied.
