Young Ambassador for Peace

This project aims to inspire the younger generation to find peace within themselves, develop leadership skills, promote teamwork, and become true ambassadors for peace within their communities, building unity and respect for all. We are providing a platform for the younger generation to take the initiative for change. It is an opportunity to invest in their future and make a real difference. Find out how you can participate.

The YAP project was launched on Wednesday 20th September 2023 with a ‘Peace Education Day’. It coincided with the International Day of Peace (21st Sept).

The project has inspired pupils (as Young Ambassadors for Peace) to take positive action within their communities during the academic year 2023-24. Participating schools nominated 6 pupil delegates from Year 4 to Year 6, to drive the project forward. Throughout the project, the pupils have taken part in a range of events exploring three key themes: peace within the self; peace with others; and peace with nature. These events have enabled the pupils to develop the skills and understanding to serve as Young Ambassadors for Peace within their school communities.

Throughout the project, regular content has been shared with the participating schools; this has taken the form of: newsletters to celebrate the impact of the project; modules to support the delivery of lessons and assemblies on the theme of peace; and workbooks to support the individual practice for pupils. Additionally, visits to participating schools were conducted to allow pupils to provide further guidance to the pupils; to allow pupils to share their progress; and to celebrate the impact that they have had. The pupils have embraced the project and have inspired members of their communities to create a peaceful environment for all.

As participating schools witness the success of the project, the project will extend into subsequent academic years. The pioneering Peace Ambassador Schools of 2023-24 serve as a beacon, inspiring other schools to join in coming years. If interested, please reach out for further information.

During the project the pupils will take part in a number of activities as they develop the skills and understanding to become a Young Ambassador for Peace:
