Join 2015 Peace-Builders in #YEG!

November 20, 2014

Peacebuilders is an engaging and transformative leadership program, aimed at building a movement of socially conscious and engaged young people committed to building communities of inclusion, dignity and peace.

Through a community agency study tour and dialogue series, young people (16-28 yrs) will explore, and gain a greater appreciation for, Edmonton’s diverse cultures, perspectives and ways of being while debating critical issues in the community.

Peacebuilders will meet, engage with, and learn from members of various social, ethnocultural and faith communities; reflect on key issues related to diversity and human rights; and, explore Canadian history, identity and values.

A dialogue to action process will be facilitate new relationships while engaging participants in collective conversation and change-making.

As Peacebuilders, participants will play a critical role in advancing the voice of Edmonton’s youth on issues related to diversity, inclusion and human rights and will work together to build an Edmonton where the rights and dignity of all are respected and upheld.

Community agency visits and dialogues will be held weekly on Tuesdays from 7:00-9:00pm starting January 13th-April 7th. Locations will be confirmed and communicated in January. Participants are responsible for their own transportation. There is no fee for the program. Contributions are welcome.
