Thank you for your interest in becoming a partner with the Peacebuilders Initiative!  We constantly looking to expand our partnerships to include more parishes and high schools, and we hope you will consider working with us.  As liaisons to the Peacebuilders Initiative, partners play a crucial role in helping to identify and recruit students for the program. Partners also take an active role in various aspects of the program, including advising on a peace project designed and implemented by the students.
