EVENT DATE: May 05, 2013
Generation Peace Serves:
Generation Peace Serves is an international service learning program designed to inspire young people to be global citizens and to be the “change they wish to see in the world."
The immersion experience brings participants into the culture with its language, religiosity, and historic nuances. Participants learn about the economic, political, and social situations and gain insights into family life, class structure, education and job opportunities. Participants see real challenges and then are empowered to make a difference through volunteerism at the local level. We hope their actions inspire others to also make a difference. Hence, our mission statement:
Our goal is to inspire young people to be global citizens and a generation of peace. We believe in the transformative power of international public service. It expands our understanding of the world, allows us to see beyond cultural, racial, political, and religious boundaries, and allows us to see into the hearts of people - embodying the vision of “one global family.”
