Activate Your Community

Create Peace

In spite of our desire for peace, we often find ourselves, our communities, and our world facing fear, isolation, and violence. But we have the power to create change. Use your skills, talents, and resources to join Play for Peace in using laughter and play to create connection, positive change, and peace. 

Ways to Activate Play for Peace

Option 1: Host an Activity

Practice Peace Sessions encourage laughter, connection, and compassion, and help to form positive interactions with people perceived as different. A youth leader, mentor, or trainer can visit on-site (location dependent), or you can download our free Practice Peace Session activity guide to help during your session.

Option 2: Become a Trainer

Certified Trainers are experienced experiential learning trainers and social entrepreneurs who teach youth and adults to become leaders of peace. To become a Certified Trainer, you must fulfill our basic requirements and apply for our eight-hour online course, which is offered once a year. "Pay as you can" course fee is requested.

Option 3: Start a Club

Around the world, youth are becoming agents of change and ambassadors for peace, forming Play for Peace clubs in schools, organizations, neighborhoods, and communities with the support of a Play for Peace mentor. A group of five young people ages 15–25 can start a new club with the support of local organizations.

Experiencing Play for Peace is life changing.

A Play for Peace Activation Story

Welcome to West Africa! We are currently five stories up on a school roof. You can see a group of 19 Senegalese teachers, members of several local NGO’s, a poet, an artist, a woman on Senegal’s national basketball team, and Mamadou, our host and director of CAFT. Next to Mamadou is Agyat, who flew from India. Just below is Elisabeth, a Canadian from Quebec—both are the Play for Peace trainers.
