Just 10 years ago Kids for Peace started as a small grassroots nonprofit that has now become a BIG international movement by encouraging kids to take the lead in creating a peaceful world.
I am inspired to live the words of the Kids for Peace pledge each and every day....
I pledge to use my words to speak in a kind way. I pledge to help others as I go throughout my day. I pledge to care for our earth with my healing heart and hands. I pledge to respect people in each and every land. I pledge to join together as we unite the big and small. I pledge to do my part to CREATE PEACE for one and all!
My heart is filled with joy each time I hear about the wonderful work Kids for Peace is doing around the world. They truly live by the Peace Pledge that children recite each day. We, as grown-up kids can learn from their open hearts and willing spirit.
I love Kids for Peace. I am so happy Jill started this program for I have seen so many kids benefit from being active participants. We need to clone Jill.
Kids For Peace is such a rare, but desperately needed approach to healing the world -- simply empowering kids to be peacemakers. As global populations continue to explode and resources decline, modalities of peace are going to keep escalating in demand. Our survival as a species depends on our ability to co-exist peacefully. What better place to make this happen than in our children, so they carry this into the next generation? The approach that the Kids For Peace team takes to this noble mission is just as inspiring as the mission itself. They don't just promote peace, they ARE peace. They live it and breathe it. Time after time I have seen their sincerity for this work and their deep love for all other creatures in whatever they do.
I am a 5th grade elementary school teacher and every student in my class is a Kids for Peace student. I am convinced that this program transforms students from rebellious and non compliant students to kind and gentle citizens. I have seen it work!!
Positive, powerful, liberating and strong! Kids for Peace offers children and teens the opportunity to put thoughts and ideas into action. Chapters all over the world work collectively and courageously on some of our society's greatest challenges and our members actively problem SOLVE together. The members of this amazing group do not shy away from BIG issues like war, bullying, inequality...instead they face these issues head on and joyfully work towards solutions. Each and every meeting is filled with acts of kindness! The kids openly discuss current events, participate in community service (here, there and everywhere!) and even have opportunities to travel together on Peace Pledge Tours! Kids for Peace is the light that brightens the darkness and is the change we wish to see! We truly and genuinely LOVE Kids for Peace:)
