I had the great fortune to attend a Global Peacemaker program in Israel and Palestine in 2010 which was really awesome! We had participants from the US, Austria and Turkey along with Israel and Palestinian volunteers which made it very enlightening. I have also worked with Service For Peace in Louisville Kentucky for 9 years and we host many community service projects and work to reduce crime and violence through conflict resolution.

I went on the SFP 2 week trip to La Guamita, Dominican. Our mission there was to build a school classroom for the community and, more importantly, build relationships with the people of La Guamita. This trip was unique because the volunteers were made up of approximately half American and half Domincan volunteers. This was such an amazing experience to get to know Dominican volunteers as well as Dominican community memebers. Although there was a bit of a language barrier, I felt I build strong bonds with all of the volunteers. Service for Peace really works in conjunction with communities in order to understand their needs and really make an impact with projects. The work itself was very physical but we were often building along side of community volunteers so I know that the project was meaningful and helpful to the community. Service for Peace is so unique that it assesses the community's needs and is in close contact with communities before, during, and after projects have been completed. I would absolutely recommend this experience for anyone who is eager to help those less fortunate and want to be really involved in the community that they are helping!

My experience with Service For Peace in August 2005, was in the Global PeaceMakers Program in Dominican Republic. It was one of the most amazing, life-impacting experiences I had. I was able to have better understanding of a culture new to me, but also was able to see the important role, I had as a volunteer, in impacting the lives of the community members, but also the domestic volunteers that came from the community and surrounding communities. The relationships that were cultivated have been kept, and continues to amaze and inspire me the great dedication that all stakeholders have to foster positive change, progressive development, and leadership cultivation.

A great organization to work directly with communities in need. I have experience working with Communities of Peace in Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Honduras, and Guatemala. Most of the projects focus in primary education, however there are other opportunities in health, and environment. The international service programs are called Global Peacemaker, which bring together volunteers from the developed world and developing nations to serve a community in need. I learn much about culture but also the problems that developing communities face. I had a great experience in working together with others and creating long-term friendships across borders.

My volunteer trip to Guatemala through Service For Peace has been one of the best experiences of my college career. We worked in a small school in the Mayan community of El Quimal, San Martin District. Service For Peace has been able to work well with the needs of its participants and especially well with the needs of our club, Alternative Breaks @ UCSD.

When I think back about life changing events that I have encountered, participating in the Service For Peace Global Peace Makers program in 2009 is on the top of my list. I had the opportunity to help remodel a much needed canteen for an elementary school in the Ivory Coast. While in the Ivory Coast, I met and was inspired by the leadership within the organization and by the willingness of the community to improve their surroundings. The program encouraged self-sufficiency and sustainability past our short time volunteering in the village. I believe this was one of the most beneficial aspects of the Global Peace Makers program. Essentially, we were teaching the community how to fish and not just providing the food. I would recommend working with Service for Peace to anyone. It truly altered the course of my life and for that I am forever indebted to Service for Peace.

I was introduced to Service for Peace during an MLK Day of Service Planning Committee meeting in 2007. After I participated in the 2008 MLK Day of Service event, I was instantly hooked; the Service for Peace staff are the most passionate community service professionals I've ever met (they all LIVE lives of service!) and the mission of cross-cultural service and community engagement is inspiring. After I participated in the more-than-affordable 2009 Global PeaceMaker project in West Africa, my admiration for Service for Peace turned into undeniable passion! Through the Global PeaceMaker program, Service for Peace volunteers get the opportunity to travel to a foreign country, and live with/serve alongside community members, all the while being educated on comunity-driven development. The Global PeaceMaker program allows people from all walks of life to come together and work towards a common goal -- to build communities of peace. There's no greater organization that spreads the mission of peace through community-driven, cross-cultural, service-centered action. To anyone interested in giving back, whether in your own city or overseas, I recommend getting involved someway and somehow with Service for Peace--participate in a Service for Peace sponsored MLK Day of Service event or attend a GlobalPeacemaker project...If you do, I promise you, your involvement with Service for Peace will enlighten you and make you feel so incredibly ALIVE!
