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.
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.
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 Games.
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.
