Peace First is launching a rapid response grant process to help young people around the world lead projects that address community impacts of COVID-19, from providing meals to elderly neighbors to launching digital mental health campaigns to support youth feeling isolated. Rapid response grants are open to young people between the ages of 13-25, anywhere in the world, starting today.

Peace First is a non-profit organization that empowers young people to create a just and peaceful world by providing digital tools, community support, start-up funding, and stories that celebrate their journeys and impact.

Aside from the grants, the organization is taking steps to respond to the changing needs of communities due to response to COVID-19, with initiatives including convening a global group of youth leaders to design a youth-centered campaign in response to COVID-19.

They are also offering mini-grants of up to $250, mentorship, and project support to young people leading initiatives to address secondary effects of COVID-19 in their communities; and they are kicking off a series of video calls and webinars to help young people who are feeling isolated connect with youth leaders around the world, share best practices in digital organizing, and co-create projects to respond to COVID-19.
