Empowering Youth through the Performing Arts and Conflict Resolution
Empowering Youth through the Performing Arts and Conflict Resolution. We offer teens a safe place to share their stories and learn about themselves and create a city at peace in their own community.
City at Peace is a nationally recognized nonprofit organization that empowers teenagers to create safe, peaceful and productive lives and communities. Using the performing arts as a vehicle, City at Peace is developing the next generation of engaged community leaders.
City at Peace operates year-long programs that bring together vastly diverse groups of youth from all over a city. They go through an intense creative process through which they write an original musical whose stories come from their lives and their ideas for a better world. They also create community change projects where they take those ideas and act on them in their city.
City at Peace envisions a society where teenagers are valued, respected and play a leading role in creating vibrant communities.
