Service For Peace

We are an international not-for-profit organization with a mission to provide service and learning opportunities to young people who want to improve themselves and their communities. Our unique ability is helping diverse groups cross barriers of race, religion, creed, or national origin through working together in service. We help and encourage youth to become civically engaged and build cooperation between diverse groups in their communities and in the world, leading to lasting change.

Impact on Our Volunteers

We offer character education and leadership training for our volunteers. We provide skill-based education helping our volunteers develop civic mindedness and a personal sense of responsibility, personal character development, conflict resolution skills, and tools to help them make a contribution to the community and society. We also train young leaders in project development, volunteer management and capacity building through interactive, peer-led hands-on educational programs.

Effectiveness of Our Programs

The unique ability of SFP is helping diverse groups cross barriers of race, religion, creed, or national origin. We help communities organize meaningful service learning programs that promote local interests, build a culture of service and fulfill the President's call to serve. SFP ensures the most efficient and effective use of volunteers through preliminary community surveys determining and prioritizing compelling community needs. SFP interviews prominent community leaders involved in education, public safety and health and human services to ensure programs are crafted to meet community wants needs.

SFP links service to education by involving secondary schools and institutions of higher education to create lasting community change and provide opportunities for intensive commitments to service that foster civic responsibility. To strengthen grass root coalitions SFP provides technical support and outcome-based evaluation measuring positive community change and helping to build capacity and sustainability. SFP continues to reach underserved populations by forming partnerships with agencies that serve such groups.
