Supporting Youth Leaders with Rapid Response Grants

Peace First is convening a global group of youth leaders between the ages of 13 and 25 to design a meaningful, youth-centered campaign in response to COVID-19. The organization is offering minigrants of up to $250, mentorship, and project support to young people leading initiatives to address secondary effects of COVID-19 in their communities. Peace First has also kicked off a series of video calls and webinars to help young people who are feeling isolated connect with youth leaders around the world, share best practices in digital organizing, and co-create projects to respond to COVID-19. In addition, the Peace First team is creating a resource list for young people seeking project-planning support, public health information, tips on building community digitally, and ideas to care for mental health while practicing social distancing. Plus, the organization is reaching out to parents and educators around the world to provide a digital curriculum to students experiencing disruption in their education.
