Be a peace innovator. 

The Peace Innovators Scholarship & Mentoring Program equips young leaders like you with skills to tackle a problem you’re passionate about in your community. You will network with other leaders in high schools across Ontario, and by the end of one year, you will launch an event or campaign to address your cause.
