Are you an aspiring young leader?

Want to support our work and get your voice heard?

Children of Peace welcomes young peace activists, aged between 13 and 25 years - based in Gaza, Israel, Jordan, the West Bank and from across the world.

You should wish to actively participate in the work of Children of Peace, engage in fund raising and inspire other young people, while helping to develop leadership and communication skills.

Youth Ambassadors can participate as volunteers for up to five years.

Youth Ambassadors undertake roles that include speaking to a range of audiences, including fellow students at your school, college or university, developing fundraising activities, initiating inventive approaches to awareness raising activities, supporting outreach and programme delivery and contributing their views to influence local communities, government and civil society whilst also helping to reach out to other young people.

Is it for me?

If you support the principles of Children of Peace and are aged 13 - 25 and currently reside in Gaza, Israel or the West Bank you can apply. We also welcome peace activists from the Middle East, Asia, Europe and the Americas who wish to apply. You must be in education, training, volunteering or employment (including running your own business). You must be able to speak and write reasonable English and Arabic or Hebrew. You will be required to contribute to online articles, discussions and be familiar with social media such as Facebook and Twitter. We look for role models who will inspire other young people through sharing their personal journey. If you are aged under 16, we require that you obtain permission from your parent(s), guardian or educational authority.

Your point of contact is Deborah Katz or Mahmoud Jabari of the Youth Ambassador Directorate at or directly to:

How do I apply?

Joining the Children of Peace team as a Youth Ambassador is a privilege and an honour. Note you will need to be supported by a significant adult - teacher, lecturer, team leader, community leader, imam, rabbi or priest, parent or guardian if you are under age 16. First download the PDF application (and consent form if under 16). Full details of what we require are on the forms. The application can be printed, but is more easily completed on-screen by opening with Adobe PDF Reader version 9 or later.

To access the forum, you must be a validated CoP Youth Ambassador. On request, we will give you a username and password to view the forum. If you wish to contribute, and we hope you will, you’ll then need to register yourself, as a forum user.

We trust you appreciate the forum’s need for a certain level of security and confidentiality.

Depending on your browser settings, the pdf’s may download or open in a new window. If it’s a window, you can read through them first to check the required information.

Then right-click and ‘Save as…’. If you have a problem contact and we’ll email you the forms directly.

What happens next?
