Review for PeaceJam Foundation, Arvada, CO, USA
I am so grateful for the learning opportunities and the inspiration that PeaceJam offers to the youth I work with and to me! Attending PeaceJam conferences has been life-changing. One of my students, after meeting Nobel Peace laureate Tawakkol Karman at a PeaceJam conference, wrote "It is one thing to hear that the youth are the future from some random adult, but it is quite another to hear it from someone who made so much change in the world. She really made me believe it was true." Even though I have years of experience as a peace educator, I take away new ideas and teaching strategies from every PeaceJam event I attend. PeaceJam has inspired me to learn more about all Nobel Peace laureates and incorporate their experiences and perspectives into my teaching. I also very much appreciate how PeaceJam leaders genuinely care for the youth that mentor, and invite them into deeper relationships with one another. It is this kind of learning, mentoring, and connection that offers us hope for a better world.
