We provide youth in the U.S. with information about alternatives to military service. We advocate to reduce the influence of the U.S. military in the nation’s public schools. We empower youth to become peacemakers in their communities and schools, and reduce the impact of handgun and other interpersonal violence in their lives.
The Peace Program develops youth leadership for peace and social justice activism. We Mentor a United Voices youth group which provides experiential learning experiences and leadership opportunities for young social change activists. Expose the harsh realities of military service and refute false information provided by military recruiters and advertising, encouraging young people to pursue alternatives to military enlistment. Organize innovative Beats for Peace events to urge youth to Opt Out of inclusion in the military database.
