Review for PeaceJam Foundation, Arvada, CO, USA
The PeaceJam Foundation is an international organization whose mission is to create young leaders committed to positive change in themselves, their communities, and the world through the inspiration of Nobel Peace Laureates who pass on the spirit, skills, and wisdom they embody. Providing young people with the mentors, tools and community support to realize their potential and work together to envision and build a better world is a vision we share with PeaceJam. The Mattie J.T. Stepanek Foundation was introduced to this amazing organization late last year, and has been working collaboratively with them as #Partners4Peace to promote Mattie’s message that “Peace is Possible!” PeaceJam Leadership and staff members alike have been a joy to work with, and helped us amplify our mission by housing our peace activities on their "Billion Acts of Peace" website. PeaceJam Foundation's Executive Director Kate Cumbo was our Featured Toastmaster during our April virtual #Toast2Peace, when she reflected, “Mattie’s profound commitment to peace was beyond his years – he was truly a Nobel Peace Laureate in training. We at PeaceJam are working to create a generation of young people like Mattie who will show the world how to create peace. We believe we are fulfilling Mattie’s legacy through our work, and look forward to seeing what we can do together.” The Mattie J.T. Stepanek Foundation is eager to see how our partnership continues to promote peace throughout the world.
