For two years we have been putting our all into a new global initiative that will take our alumni, and PeacePlayers as a whole, to the next level. We are excited – and extremely proud – to announce The Leadership Academy, founded in honor of Martha Buford.
For the past 20 years, PeacePlayers has reached thousands of youth around the world. Now is the time to deepen our investment in these young leaders as they go out into the world as PeacePlayers alumni. Through The Leadership Academy, set to launch in September of 2022, we will invest in our alumni’s futures: their interests, their skills – their careers. And they will emerge with the skills and opportunities to make real and lasting changes for greater peace and equity where they work and where they live.
