About the Points for Peace Initiative

If there is one thing we all need more of in the world it’s Peace. Violence and conflict is an issue in virtually every area of the world and if we want to change our future, we need to focus on the youth of the world. We need to push youth to be active change-makers in their communities by having them focus on non-violent, analytical problem solving, and that is exactly what PeaceJam does. PeaceJam uses the teachings of 13 Nobel Peace Prize winners to mentor youth around the world and engage young people in social action projects that directly impact their communities. Its goal is to raise the next generation of peacemakers.

Through Points for Peace you can make cash donations in support of the PeaceJam foundation. This program will not only allow you donate money and points, but your expertise in maximizing them to create a positive change in the world.

The funds raised in the Points for Peace campaign will help bring Nobel Prize winners and year-round PeaceJam programming to 5 countries: India, Ghana, Guatemala, South Africa and East Timor, which will directly impact the lives of thousands of youth and their communities.
