Peace First

Peace First is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping young people around the world to become powerful peacemakers. Peace First defines peacemaking as the creative process of engaging with others to make a positive and lasting change. The organization awards mini-grants to eligible youth who submit plans for small social action projects to help overcome a specific injustice. Project teams should request only the amount of funds they need (a maximum of $250) and must indicate any available in-kind resources. Peace First offers mentorship and other tools and support to help young people develop and implement their projects. To apply for a mini-grant, join the Peace First community to learn more about starting a peacemaking project.
