The mission of Seeding Change is to develop life-long civically-active, and globally-aware leaders of peace and justice.
Great Lakes PeaceJam is the regional affiliate of the PeaceJam Foundation, an international educational program built around Nobel Peace Prize winners who work personally with youth to pass on the spirit, skills, and wisdom they embody. The goal of PeaceJam is to inspire a new generation of peacemakers who will transform their local communities, themselves, and the world. Youth ages 5-25 study the lives and work of one or several Nobel Peace Laureates while going through a curriculum exploring violence, oppression, isms, peace and nonviolence, and the Nobel Peace Prize. The students work together to create a Global Call to Action service learning project to make their community and the world more peaceful and a better place to live.
