Creating A Generation of Peacemakers--Children

"Imagine" is a suggestion, a thought, a command that is used in the coaxing of people to support a nonprofit called Peace First.

In other words, imagine honoring young children who transform a community into a community of peace and justice. Imagine sharing those stories.  Imagine seeing young people as problem solvers and positive influences.

The Boston Globe calls Peace First and its peace award to children the "Nobel for young people."

The group's goals include:
  • Preventing bullying
  • Helping the homeless
  • Pursuing equality
  • Empowering girls
...and to  "to create the next generation of peacemakers. We view children as natural problem solvers and creative thinkers, and invest in their ability to see themselves as leaders." according to the website.
