We work with governments, civil society, local authorities, traditional leaders, and community actors across the globe to address and prevent conflict and violence. Using education, workforce development, and civic and political engagement, we empower vulnerable communities to play a key role in preventing community violence. In Burkina Faso, we train young leaders in conflict prevention, management, and advocacy techniques while bolstering community resilience. In Mexico, we support civil society organizations that work directly with at-risk youth to drive down crime and violence. In marginalized and conflict-prone areas of Lebanon, we have led activities encouraging youth to become leaders by fostering critical thinking skills, civic engagement, and desire to participate in the political process. By preventing conflict at its roots, we promote inclusive and sustainable peace.
