Are you an aspiring young leader? Want to support our work and get your voice heard?
Children of Peace welcomes young Israeli and Palestinian peace activists, aged between
13 and 25 years - based in Gaza, Israel, Jordan, and the West Bank. They should wish
to actively participate in the work of Children of Peace, engage in decision making
and inspire other young people, while helping to develop leadership and communication
skills. Youth Ambassadors participate as volunteers for up to five years.
The Youth Ambassador scheme also welcomes young peace activists in the USA and Europe
as potential Youth Ambassadors.
Youth Ambassadors undertake roles that include speaking to a range of audiences,
including fellow students at your school, college or university, 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.
