Peacejam coaching and mentoring applications open

PeaceJam is an international education program built around Nobel Peace Prize Laureates who work personally with youth to pass on the spirit, skills, and wisdom they embody. The goal of PeaceJam is to inspire a new generation of leaders who will transform themselves, their local communities, and the world.

PeaceJam Coaching

PeaceJam serves a number of local area schools and community programs utilizing our PeaceJam curriculum. We send FSU students to serve as PeaceJam coaches where they have the opportunity to work with groups of young people to educate them about the 13 Nobel Peace Laureates who are a part of our program. They also help their students develop a service project, which they implement by the end of the school year. If you have any questions about our program and how to become involved, contact Kiah Albritton at kalbritton@fsu.edu

Fall coaching applications are due Sunday, September 8 at 11:59 p.m.
