Celebrate Your Peace Journey:

Be a Peace Teen Ambassador

– Make Peace the News!



“Peace is more than a project — it is about being peace in this moment, and considering ‘what next’ beyond a project.” — Jeni Stepanek



Peace Teen Ambassadors become recognized for their Peace Journey efforts. Mattie said that “Peace begins within each of us, and then grows as we work with together, with and for others, and share peace in a way that inspires others to do the same.” Peace Teen Ambassadors are change agents who inspire others so that more and more people begin to consider and choose peace as well. They celebrate peace, and in doing so, they help shift the focus from ‘sensational events’  and ‘problems’ in our world, to ‘inspirational realities’ and ‘peace’ for our world. By choosing to move through a Peace Journey — considering and creating and carrying-out a Peace Project in thought and word and action — then commencement as Teen Peace Ambassadors who Make Peace the News!  



  • Be recognized for your Peace Journey. Issue a press release.
  • Share your project with a local politician and/or through local media. Reach out to your local City Council and share with them.
  • Consider turning your project into a ‘Cause’ on Facebook. Tweet about your peace efforts.
  • Tell others how and why your started your peace project, what you did in each step, who it affected, why it matters, and ‘what next’ for peace as result of your work –

“Make Peace the News!”


Recognition by Mattie’s Foundation: 

Send us a description of your Peace Outreach Effort, along with your press release, a news clipping, a link to a website or blog about your effort, a letter from a local representative, or some documentation of your outreach endeavor. We will publicize your achievement and  post a link to your Outreach items. We will also send you a Peace Ambassador Certificate, a Choose Peace bumper sticker, a Three Choices bookmark, and list you as a Peace Teen Ambassador.
