Peacebuilders in Red Deer
Peacebuilders is an engaging and transformative leadership program for young people ages 16-28 who are interested in building a human rights community in Central Alberta. As Peacebuilders, participants will play a critical role in advancing the voice of Red Deer’s youth on issues related to diversity, inclusion and human rights and will work together to build a community where the rights and dignity of all are respected and upheld. Peacebuilders 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 facilitates new relationships while engaging participants in change-making community organizing and advocacy. Participants will develop skills in communication, critical thinking and leadership.
