Youth as a Catalyst for Peace

The critical link between youth and conflict is receiving more attention among development professionals, both in the United States and internationally. It is increasingly clear that how our world’s youth view themselves and interact with their peers, their families and their communities are important predictors of our global future. Whether youth choose violence or peaceful resolution when presented with tomorrow’s challenges depends on what opportunities they are given today.

This publication demonstrates FHI 360's expertise and broad experience in this area by showing the wide variety of projects that have set the stage for peacebuilding through youth development.
