PeaceJam Foundation



About Us

Headquartered in Arvada Colorado, PeaceJam is a global youth organization led by 14 Nobel Peace Laureates dedicated to growing and supporting a generation of future Nobel Peace Laureates who believe peace is possible - and know how to get it done.

PeaceJam was founded in Colorado in 1996 and has grown to engage over 1.3 Million youth in over 40 countries in the PeaceJam program.
Our mission is to create a generation of young leaders committed to positive change in themselves, their communities and world through the inspiration of Nobel Peace Laureates, and the spirit, skills, and wisdom they embody.

We do this by providing young people with:
- Nobel Peace Laureates - The world’s most powerful and courageous role models.
- Award-winning curriculum that develops six essential competencies.
- World-class youth events designed by our Nobel Peace Laureates to awaken purpose, teach peace, and model bringing joy to the hard work of changing the world.
- Billion Acts of Peace Campaign that gives youth a process, platform and community to develop their service learning projects and campaigns to change the world.
