Empowering young leaders in New Mexico
- Young women ages 15-18 in the Santa Fe region
- Learn effective communication strategies, compassionate dialogue, conflict resolution
- Curriculum focuses on issues of equity, inclusion, and bridge-building
- Collaborate on community-based social justice projects
- Interact with peers from Israel and Palestine, and uniquely, young women in Gaza.
The 2022 peace ambassadors interviewed young women in the Gaza Girls program about their lives and wrote these compelling stories.
Trainings and workshops will convene in Santa Fe, from February–April 2023. The program culminates with online and in-person international collaborations with peers from the Middle East, May-August.
We welcome young people who identify as women ages 15-18 from Santa Fe, Albuquerque & Northern New Mexico to apply.
The Peace Ambassador Program teaches and develops skills in leadership, resiliency, media literacy, critical thinking, teamwork, public speaking, and community action. The 2022 program included storytelling (oral and digital), music, art activism, and an examination of young women’s experiences globally.
The Peace Ambassador Program fee is $100. Scholarships are available.
