WHO: Since its inception in 1993, the non-profit Seeds of Peace organization has graduated over 4,300 teenagers from 22 countries worldwide. The organization began as a summer camp in Maine where teens built relationships across the divides of their country’s conflicts, impacting the world by embracing and promoting peace-building initiatives. Seeds of Peace has since grown into a year-round, multi-faceted leadership development and co-existence program, dedicated to empowering young people with the understanding and skills needed to lead the way toward a future free from violence, hatred and fear.
