A Global movement of youth leaders using basketball to create a more peaceful and equitable world. Through a combination of bridge building, leadership training, peace education and professional development, our programs produce inspired and capable peace advocates with the skills, network and motivation to influence social change.

Since 2001, PeacePlayers has been working in some of the toughest regions of the world using the simple yet powerful premise that "children who play together can learn to live together." The movement began in South Africa, with locations in Northern Ireland, the Middle East and Cyprus opening soon after. 20 years later, PeacePlayers has expanded to include 5 Cities in the United States and has directly reached more than 80,000 young people across the world.
