Peace First is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping young people around the world to become powerful peacemakers by investing in their ideas and providing tools and skills. Mini-grants of up to $250, mentorship, and project support is offered to young people leading initiatives to address secondary effects of COVID-19 in their communities.
The application process is ongoing.
The WHO has declared COVID-19 to be a global pandemic, and has recommended communities take social distancing measures to prevent the spread of the virus. This challenge is threatening our social fabric, mental health, trust in institutions, and the economic security of billions of people. That’s why Peace First is launching a rapid response grant process to help young people around the world lead projects that address community impacts of COVID-19, from providing meals to elderly neighbors to launching digital mental health campaigns to support youth feeling isolated.
Rapid response grants are open to young people between the ages of 13-25, anywhere in the world, starting today.
