Review for PeaceJam Foundation, Arvada, CO, USA
I've witnessed youth in this program blossom in such beautiful and unexpected ways. This is not your average volunteerism. It is youth-led, not adults telling students how to log service hours. The participants identify a problem in their community and use critical thinking skills and collaboration to identify the root cause of this problem. Their passion and creativity take over as they explore and implement ways to help their community solve the problem. Self-confidence, empowerment, and pride are just a few of the many rewards. Interaction with Nobel Peace Laureates and youth around the world is icing on the cake! PeaceJam provides a sense of belonging, a window to the world, and so much more.
