Strategic Partnerships Intern

Description

There are 1.2 billion people between the ages of 15 to 24 in the world. They represent an incredible potential of innovation, manpower and leadership. The Global Peace Foundation believes that youth driven by noble visions can tackle many of the longstanding divisions and crises faced by humanity today with their energy, passion and ability to dream beyond the current reality.

However, youth of today face many challenges. Some 300 million youth are unemployed or underemployed. In many regions, their idealism makes them easy targets for extremist groups, and they are often victim to socially destructive behaviors like substance abuse and violence.

Global Peace Youth, the youth division of the Global Peace Foundation, has a mission to educate young people to become future leaders with both moral and innovative capacity. Global Peace Foundation strives to positively impact the world by forming a movement of young leaders from all backgrounds of faith, culture, nationality and ethnicity under common principles, values and aspirations, working towards the common goal of peace.
