What to expect
Have your idea but not sure how to make it a reality? Want to make a difference but not sure where to start? You are a perfect candidate for the Peace Innovators program!
By participating in the program, you will engage in learning workshops to give you the tools your Innovation Plan needs to succeed. Participants can expect to spend a minimum of 40 hours building and implementing your plan over the year. These 40 hours will not be evenly divided over the year. As you are applying, think about where your busy times are: when do exams usually take place? Are you involved in any extra-curricular activities? Map out your other commitments to help set you up for success.
