Peace Heroes is a dynamic and interactive school program that uses stories of real-life women and men from every continent across the globe to instill in students and teachers alike the values and ethos of peace while giving them the tools to be proactive peacemakers. Peace Heroes empowers students to become agents of profound and positive change in their own specific context as well as in the world at large.

Students learn about hardships, injustices, and conflicts all over the world as well as the people who have stood up to bring peace and wholeness to these situations. They are then encouraged to learn about the challenges facing their own communities and celebrate their own local peace heroes. This dual approach empowers students to become agents of profound and positive change in their own specific context as well as in the world at large.
