    • Are you concerned about the youth in our community?

    • Are you a mentor?
    • Are you willing to volunteer your time a few hours a month?
    • Are you a youth between the age of 5 and 18?
    • Have you lost your sibling, parent or close friend to violence by death or prison?

    If you answered YES to any of these questions, then Youth For Peace is for YOU!

    We are looking for mentors and youth who wish to join our Youth For Peace group. We meet once or twice per month.
