Leadership Program for Youth Organizers and Change-Makers
Now is the moment for students to become the leaders the world needs. Peace First is launching the Black Unity Initiative for Leadership Development (B.U.I.L.D.) program for Black leaders aged 13–25. This three-month leadership and collective care program is intended for young Black activist artists and storytellers who are beginning their journey in organizing for social justice and seeking to deepen their knowledge and skills. Designed to amplify the voices of young Black change-makers in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Europe, B.U.I.L.D provides opportunities for participants to build skills in community organizing, project leadership, self-care, wellbeing, and storytelling. Throughout the program, participants will receive a $250 stipend, peer mentorship, personalized coaching, skills-based workshops for social change, and access to Peace First’s global network of young change-makers and adult supporters.
