Our impact is global

Building a Movement to Forge Life-Long Change

PeacePlayers offers basketball programming, peace education, and leadership development. Through our programming, we transform the lives of youth living in communities affected by conflict and inequity. As a result, youth become equipped to influence lasting change in their communities.

Empowering Youth and Impacting Communities

Areas around the world are increasingly divided across racial, national, and socioeconomic divides. Therefore, communities face increased inequality, violence, and discrimination. Recent studies have shown that participants are empowered to build a more peaceful and equitable society.

Nurturing a Sense of Global Belonging

Participants can form connections with youth from all over the globe. Even through COVID-19 restrictions, our programs have been innovative in maintaining these valuable connections. For instance, youth connect virtually with others through our global initiatives such as the Friendship Game.

All Made Possible Through
Global and Local Partnerships

Creating a network of young leaders has been made possible through partnerships with Nike, Laureus, USAID, Beyond Sport, and our vast network of community partners around the globe.
