Why Peace Heroes?

Simple acts can lead to great change.

— Wangari Maathai

Imagine if young people everywhere learned about the world around them through the lens of peace, not violence and division, so that they could become the next generation of peace heroes.

Our educational resources inspire and equip young people to become agents of profound and positive change in their own communities.

Together we can raise up a generation of young people that will champion nonviolence, celebrate difference, cultivate empathy and work for peace in their communities and around the world.

Our Vision

Our goal is to provide communities across the globe with the resources they need to empower their young people to respond to our world’s brokenness with courage, creativity, compassion, and hope.

We want to give students new heroes and help them internalize that each one of them can be a peace hero.

How We Do It

From Nelson Mandela in South Africa to Malala Yousafzai in Pakistan, from Wangari Maathai in Kenya to Thich Nhat Hanh in Vietnam, our program features stories of real-life peace heroes from around the globe whose lives testify to the transformative power of peace. Through their stories, your students learn about hardships, injustices, and conflicts all over the world and how these brave people stood up to bring healing and wholeness to these situations.

These stories will inspire and equip your students to become agents of profound and positive change in their own communities. Together we can raise up a generation of young people that will champion nonviolence, celebrate difference, cultivate empathy and work for peace in their communities around the world.

It was a privilege and honor to teach my students about each of the peace heroes…And yet, of all the inspiring, motivating individuals we learned from, I am delighted that the simplest notion of sharing the belovedness of another human being is what consistently made a sustaining impact.
