Mothering Across Continents
  • NewGen PeacebuildersSM
    is a peace education program
    that emphasizes the role, value
    and impact of young people
    ages 14-24 in achieving
    a peaceful world. The Goal: Make peace education a rite of passage for everyone.

  • Graduates of NewGen Peacebuilders–Bolivia (2013) produced a high-profile conference on the role of youth in peacebuilding.

  • A "Walk for Wisdom" action peace project culminated in a celebration of funds raised to purchase books and solar lights for primary schools in South Sudan. Due to years conflict, South Sudan is considered the world's most fragile country.

  • Elissa Scherer (right) received a 2014 national award from Youth Service America for leadership of a team action peace project addressing urban "food deserts."

  • An exercise to collect and select media images spurs discussion of how societies develop perceptions of violence and peace.

  • The IPARD/C model of youth service learning includes a "D" for demonstration and "C" for celebration. Every NewGen Peacebuilders training ends with both.

  • Midway through the program, action peace project teams practice discussing conflict and peace in public, and receive feedback from mentors and peers.

  • Participants use case studies to conduct a Conflict Analysis and develop a Theory of Change–tools that lay
    the foundation for an
    action peace project.

  • The program includes facilitated use of a
    10-Step Peace Project Planning
    tool that incorporates
    goal-setting, milestones and
    success measures.
