Peace First is launching the Peace First Challenge, a call to action for teams of young people across America to create powerful solutions for issues in their schools and local communities. By signing up, teams will gain access to digital tools, mentors, and a chance to participate in $100,000 in funding. The challenge is open to youth between the ages of 13 and 24 living in the United States. Young people participate as a team of at least three members, with an adult serving as a mentor or facilitator. Every team that signs up has access to financial support with minigrants of up to $250. Actual dollar amounts will be determined by project needs. Ten teams will be invited to showcase their ideas at the First Annual Allstate Youth Innovation Summit, June 2017, in Chicago. Adults are encouraged to sign up as mentors to help guide teams through their challenge project.
Deadlines: February 10, 2017, for registration; May 12, 2017, for project completion
