Youth & Peace in Action: Engaging 100,000 Young Peacebuilders
Peace is often called a “universal human value,” and peace has been identified as a priority by Rotarians and Rotary International for more than 100 years. Today, “Promoting Peace” is one of RIs seven areas of focus.

In July 2020, Peter Kyle, Rotary International Director for Zones 33&34 (2020-2022) began sharing a vision to promote and support 65,000 Rotarians in more 1,700+ Rotary Clubs in Zones 33&34 as connectors and conveners for peace. The signature initiative Youth & Peace in Action: Engaging 100,000 Young Community Peacebuilders (YPA) was established as a bold signature initiative to Equip, Energize, Educate and Engage Rotarians, community members, teachers and students in peace education and peace projects.

Rotary Peace Fellows Patricia Shafer of NewGen Peacebuilders and Ana Patel of the Outward Bound Center for Peacebuilding were selected as Implementing Partners based on their extensive experience in peacebuilding, peace education, and record of service and collaboration with Rotarians.

By November 2020, District Governors from 20 Districts had stepped forward as Champions and committed early funding for the “Establish” phase. A number of District Governors-Elect had begun to consider how “YPA” could be a significant part of the 2021-22 year.

A Million Dollar Challenge has been set forth to scale peace education that could produce as many as 1,000 peace projects at the school and community level.

Join us in working together to bring the vision to reality!
