Congratulations to our

What is a Peace Club Tween?

A Peace Club Tween is a member of our free

Mattie’s Peace Club Kids Program

who has chosen to create

or participate in a Peace Activity.

What is a Peace Activity?

Peace Activity can be an individual, family, class,

or group activity related to service, education,

awareness, or anything that helps another person,

or any group of people in our world.


How old is a Peace Club Tween?

Usually, a Peace Club Tween is about age 9 through 12 –

not quite old enough for our Peace Club Teens program,

but ready to “Reflect, Respond, & Reach Out with Peace”

— just like the teens who participate in our Teen Peace Journey,

and just like the adults and groups who choose to become

Peace Certified by Mattie’s Foundation.


Can a PCTw receive adult assistance?

We encourage parents, teachers, youth mentors, and

other adults and teens to support youth in their Peace Activity –

from planning to participation to providing a summary for this page.

We encourage youth to do what they can independently, and

we encourage adults and teens to guide and support

these youth as they move through their peace journey.

The goal to help young people understand and celebrate peace,

and move from “attitude to action” in choices for peace.


Can a PCTw earn more than one certificate?

Each year, all Peace Club Tweens are eligible

to receive a new Peace Activity Certificate.

They can do the same Peace Activity each year,

or  they can build on their Peace Activity

so that it impacts more people each year,

or they can create a new Peace Activity each year.

What matters most is that they are choosing peace,

and moving from attitude to action.


What are PCTw Peace Activities like?

We are very, very proud of our Peace Club Tweens.

the Peace Activity each PCTw participated in or created.


How can a PCK become a PCTw?
