Project Description: The Peace Project is a NYC-based organization that provides in-school human rights and global citizenship education programs for middle and high school students. The Peace Project addresses a critical need for civics education in New York City schools, specifically working to inform, inspire, and ignite students to address human rights issues that directly affect them, their peers, their community, and their generation.
We believe that students have the right to be informed on the hows and whys of current events and human rights violations so that they are better equipped to be empathetic, solutions-oriented and engaged participants and civic leaders in their communities.
Since its inception in 2013, we has served over 2,000 students, 35 teachers, and 6 schools.
