“With Play for Peace, kids that didn’t think they could go to school, or go to college or achieve anything because their environment has always taught them they can’t and you won’t, go on to graduate college and start or work for other programs doing things that they learned from us.”

Chaun began participating in Play for Peace in high school. Coming from big family, he wanted to work with children and wanted to work with people of different cultures, backgrounds, and the overall diversity. When he saw Play for Peace open at his high school he decided that he “Definitely had to be with that group!” While Chaun has been with Play for Peace for over 14 years, it on his 10th year that he had the opportunity to go to Capetown, South Africa and hang out with other Play for Peace facilitators. They had seen each other through video and through pictures but they finally got to meet. It felt like they had known each other forever.
