Peace Ambassador Program
We leverage our extensive experience in Israel and Palestine to empower young women to create change in New Mexico through our Peace Ambassador Program, a six-month intensive leadership training that teaches compassionate communication, conflict resolution, and other skills to address issues of equity and inclusion.
Teens connect their own experiences with those of other young women in Israel and Palestine, learning about each other’s history, sharing personal stories, and creating joint projects that address inequities, build bridges, and heal the pain caused by interpersonal and inter-group conflict. Trainings convene twice a month, from January–May 2021, and this year will focus on the intersectionality of race, class, and gender in relation to environmental justice. The program culminates in a series of three virtual meetings with Young Leaders in the Middle East.
The program deadline has passed and we are no longer accepting applications at this time. For questions, please contact Chelsea Call, Local Youth Coordinator, via email at [email protected].
The Peace Ambassador Program is a 6-month intensive leadership training. The 2021 session January with meetings twice per month through May.
We welcome young women age 15-18 to apply. You must be a resident of northern New Mexico to participate.
The Peace Ambassador Program fee is $100. Scholarships are available.
