Celebrating the peace building work of our grantees brings great joy to our organizational efforts as a grant making foundation.
Here are a few examples:
The Mosaic Project
‘This is what peace looks like.’ Vicki said, gesturing to a room of nearly 100 4th and 5th graders. The 16-year-old Youth Leader’s voice was filled with emotion as she spoke. Of the many magical Mosaic moments over the past 21 years, this is one in particular I’ve been thinking about lately.Lara Mendel, Co-Founder/Executive Director
Receiving funding from the Peaceful World Foundation in 2018, the Mosaic Project has demonstrated resilience and solidarity in their mission.
Lara Mendel is reflecting on an activity at the Outdoor Project which captures the complexity of our changing world within movement and creative activities.
Roots & Routes
Resourcefully emerging out of a global pandemic, our diverse youth seized the opportunity for mentorship, engagement, and conversation between community leaders and youth around the world.Juli Hazelwood, Co-Founder/Executive Director
As we cultivated our collaborative peace building efforts, Juli and I generated a series of themes around International Community Development and Engagement which we will co-facilitate together within Roots and Routes’ Youth Visionary Collective Program.
