Seeds of Peace inspires and cultivates new generations of global leaders in communities divided by conflict. We equip them with the skills and relationships they need to accelerate social, economic, and political changes essential for peace.

Our approach focuses on personal transformation and then wider societal change. Our leadership development model begins with a transformational camp session in Maine. The program shifts attitudes and perceptions and builds respect and empathy.

After graduating from Camp, participants build on their experiences through local year-round leadership development programs that strengthen relationships and leadership capacities.

We then accelerate the impact of our alumni who are challenging the ideologies, policies, and practices that perpetuate conflict through fellowships and convenings.

Our network now encompasses over 6,000 alumni in the Middle East, South Asia, Europe and the United States who are uniquely positioned to lead change.
