Kids4Peace is devoted to empowering youth to become peace leaders. In Jerusalem and in the US, we help youth form relationships of trust and respect with peers from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and religions.  Board members share a conviction that even in deep and painful conflicts, there are many who seek to secure a positive and just future for all. Rather than taking sides in political debates, Kids4Peace helps youth to see complex issues from many perspectives, which includes sharing their own views and having empathy for others.
