PeaceJam Youth Curriculum - Learn About Nobel Laureates
Learn about the Nobel Laureates is a section of the PeaceJam website that includes curriculum to introduce students to the lives and work of Nobel Peace Laureates.
PeaceJam is an international education program built around leading Nobel Peace Laureates who work personally with youth to pass on the spirit, skills, and wisdom they embody. The goal of PeaceJam is to inspire a new generation of peacemakers who will transform their local communities, themselves, and the world. Since the PeaceJam program was launched in March of 1996, almost 100,000 teenagers worldwide have participated in the program. Each student has had an average of 45.5 contact hours with their teacher, mentor, community leader, or PeaceJam staff member. Through the PeaceJam program, 140,000 new service projects have been developed and implemented, and thousands of new volunteer opportunities for youth have been created.
