Peace Teen Ambassadors & Outreach Efforts
Celebrate Your Peace Journey:
“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!
