Overview

Mission Statement

Kids4Peace Boston educates and inspires Jewish, Christian and Muslim youth to be interfaith peace leaders. We concentrate on the value-formation ages of 12 to 18, creating opportunities for young people and their families to foster friendships across faith boundaries.  Through summer camps and year-round activities, we develop an interfaith community equipped with the knowledge, skills, and relationships to build –together—a new culture of peace.

Background Statement

Kids4Peace Boston is an independent nonprofit organization chartered in Massachusetts and serving youth in the Boston area, yet its roots started in Jerusalem where the Kids4Peace movement was born in 2002. At that time, in a period of escalating violence in Israel and Palestine, in the face of hatred and fear, twelve brave families -- Muslims, Jews and Christians -- had the courage to come together. Instead of talking politics, they talked about their children.

Their vision – call it naïve or profound – was that the way to peace was through friendships based on trust and respect and, the crucial point, friendships that start young. That summer, the first ever Kids4Peace summer camp brought together 11- and 12-years olds from those twelve families. Since then, more than 1800 youngsters and their families have joined the Kids4Peace movement. The Kids4Peace concept has broadened to include American Jews, Muslims and Christian youth -- and their families – with Kids4Peace programs several American cities.

The spark that ignited Kids4Peace Boston was kindled in 2009 when Peggy Stevens, a gifted teacher, teacher of teachers and, at the time, director of program development for the American Youth Foundation, visited Kids4Peace Jerusalem while on a tour with her Boston-area women’s interfaith book group. Inspired, she and a core group of Muslim, Christian and Jewish volunteers spent two years developing a program that met the high standards they set for themselves. The American Youth Foundation donated space at its accredited camp in New Hampshire for Kids4Peace Boston to host its first camp in the summer of 2011. Since that time, Kids4Peace Boston has developed a six-year, year-round program for middle and high school youth in the Boston area.

Impact Statement

Kids4Peace Boston accomplishments in 2015 include:
  • Holding the 5th year of interfaith Peace Pal summer camp for Christian, Muslim, and Jewish 6th graders from the Boston area and from Israel/Palestine
  • Conducting a robust year-round Peace Leader program including monthly activities for participants in the 7th - 11th grades that promoted interfaith understanding and allowed participants to develop and use their peace leader skills.
  • Hosting the first annual Kids4Peace Boston High School Interfaith Conference, led and organized by Kids4Peace Boston High School participants  
  • Revising the organizational strategic plan and implementing a revised staffing plan that included hiring a full-time Executive Director
Goals for 2016 include:
  • Continuing to grow our presence in the Boston community as the interfaith youth development organization committed to fostering the power of relationship building and interfaith understanding to cross social divides
  • Offering summer camps and programs for all ages of our participants that strengthen peace leadership skills and provide opportunities for action to promote interfaith understanding
  • Expanding our fundraising revenue to support programs and scholarships for all six years of middle and high school, including the hiring of a full-time Program Director
  • Developing protocols for outcome evaluation 

Needs Statement

Kids4Peace Boston seeks additional revenue to support three priority initiatives:
  1. Hiring a full-time Program Director ($43,000): Since 2009, dedicated volunteers have made our program a reality. We continue to rely heavily on their insights and energy. However, as our program has grown to include 6 years of participants, we need a full-time Program Director, who will work along side our Executive Director, to develop and implement our programs.
  2. Scholarships and program implementation support to maintain a diverse community ($45,000):We are dedicated to keeping Kids4Peace Boston programs affordable for all families and committed to recruiting and retaining participants from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds. Currently, over half of Kids4Peace Boston participants require scholarships for both year-round and summer programs throughout their 6 years of participation in our programs. In addition, revenue from modest camp tuition and year-round program fees cover only a fraction of the cost to run these programs.
  3. Organizational infra-structure and support ($12,000): Currently, Kids4Peace Boston does not have formal office space. As our organization has grown, the need for a shared work space, one that can accommodate staff, volunteers, interns, and families, has grown.

CEO Statement

Kids4Peace Boston is one of the only organizations that educates and inspires Christian, Jewish, and Muslim youth in grades 7 through 12 to become interfaith peace leaders. With a 6-year program, we create opportunities for young people and their families to foster diverse friendships across faith boundaries and promote interfaith understanding in Boston and beyond. Through powerful summer camps and year-round activities, Kids4Peace Boston enables teens to develop local and global perspectives on peace through interactions with a diverse group of Muslim, Jewish, and Christian peers from the Boston area, Jerusalem, and the West Bank; gain and practice leadership, communication, and peacebuilding skills; learn how faith can nurture peace and understanding; and have FUN together!

Board Chair Statement

Among peace education efforts, Kids4Peace stands out in three ways:
  • We begin with 12 year olds, engaging their natural openness to learning and making friends.  At 12, they are young enough that parents also get involved, yet old enough to be forming their own opinions about the world.
  • We stay involved through six crucial years. Our goal is that when these young people finish high school, they are equipped with the intercultural, inter-religious, conflict-resolution skills they need to help move their world toward peace.
  • We respect each other’s religion, modeling how you can value your own tradition without devaluing the traditions of others. Religion, so often portrayed as a divider, can be a unifier in an atmosphere of mutual respect. 
Kids4Peace Boston partners with Kids4Peace International, an independent NGO.  Kids4Peace International has its own staff in Jerusalem and in the U.S. and does not provide assistance with governance, fundraising, organizational development, or curriculum development for Kids4Peace Boston. Kids4Peace Boston is a separate organization and is not a local branch of Kids4Peace International.

Programs

1. PEACE LEADER SUMMER CAMP

Every summer Kids4Peace Boston hosts an interfaith peace-education camp for youth. For the first 5 summers, participants included 6th graders from Kids4Peace Jerusalem. In the summer of 2016, Boston area Muslim,  Christian, and Jewish 6th and 7thgraders will come together for eight days of summer camp activities in the mountains of New Hampshire. Our campers not only learn new skills like archery or kayaking, they also learn skills for becoming peace leaders and for solving the kinds of problems that keep people in the Boston area and around the world from understanding one another. At the end of the summer, campers are invited to join the K4PB six-year Peace Leader program that meets during the school year. In future summers, these K4PB participants will have the chance to try out their peace leader skills with teens from Jerusalem and the West Bank. K4PB currently offers all ages of participants summer opportunities to strengthen and use their leadership skills.
Budget  $80,000.00
Category  Religion, General/Other Interfaith Programs
Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years) Families Middle East
Program Short-Term Success 
  • Learn that all the Abrahamic faiths stress hospitality as a core value and practice extending hospitality to one another
  • Break cultural stereotypes
  • Humanize "the other"
  • Empower with knowledge about other religions and cultures
  • Gain a global perspective
  • Empower with skills to work toward interfaith understanding and justice
  • Become inspired to continue in the 6 year PEACE LEADER program in Boston and (for Jerusalem participants) in the 6 year Continuation program in Jerusalem
Program Long-Term Success 
Kids4Peace Boston campers today are leaders tomorrow. We want them to claim the identity of peace-makers. Our aim is to equip our participants with inter-cultural and peace-making skills to become globally conscious citizens able to recognize the roots of conflict in their lives and on a global scale and to then create new realities for peace.
 
As their learning matures, youth in Kids4Peace Boston speak more openly with one another, not only about their religions, but about the suffering in their lives, their families and their people. Because they hear these stories from close friends, they can receive the painful narrative of the other side with respect and compassion.
 
When asked "What are your views on what's happening in Israel?"2011 PEACE PAL participant and current student of a Jewish day school, Jess, responded "I'm surrounded by people who support Israel, but I've come to realize that I'm not pro either side, I'm pro-peace. I can see how both are at fault, and peace is the solution.
Program Success Monitored By 
The PEACE PALS program has an interfaith team that designs, implements, and conducts formative evaluation of our program components.It includes educators from the three Abrahamic religions, a child psychologist, and a professor with extensive research experience in Israel. This effort is led by Peggy Stevens, Vice President for Programs and founder of Kids4Peace Boston, who has been the project director or lead designer of four federally-funded grants through Education Development Center, a global organization that designs, delivers, and evaluates innovative programs to address some of the world’s most urgent challenges in education, health, and economic development.
 
Currently developing our fourth PEACE PALS program, we have demonstrated our ability to engage youth and their parents and to effectively design and implement programs which blend a diverse group of participants from different religious and cultural backgrounds in a mutually enriching way.
Examples of Program Success 
“Kids4Peace is hard to explain. In a nutshell, you could say it’s a camp where you learn about the other religions, but it’s much more than that. It is a chance to meet people whose lives are so much different from yours, but who all want the same thing…peace.”- Simrill, PEACE PAL Participant
 
Sufia Hassan, the Principal of the M.E.C.C.A. Islamic School and a Kids4Peace Boston board member, tells Muslim parents that their children should join our program because, "he or she will never be as respected by Christian and Jewish children as they are in Kids4Peace."
 
“A foundational strength of PEACE PALS is that children are given the opportunity to create real friendships with other children who are typically thought of as 'enemies'.  As with last year, this was certainly the case.  Ours is the story of relationships that build upon one another and send countless positive ripples out into the world.” – PEACE PALS 2011 and 2012 staff person

2. PEACE LEADER YEAR-ROUND PROGRAM

Kids4Peace Boston exists to heal divisions. And the PEACE LEADER program is specifically focused on bridging those divisions between people from different faiths, communities, races, and economic or educational backgrounds that we experience right here in Boston.
 
Over the course of six years, parents and youth engage in monthly activities and quarterly retreats, to first learn, then practice, and finally lead others in the following core areas:
  • Develop leadership skills including collaboration, problem-solving, making others feel welcome and included, and facilitating when conversations get awkward or tense.
  • Cross boundaries to overcome stereotypes and celebrate people who are from different faiths, neighborhoods, races, ethnicities, and backgrounds.
  • Learn skills to manage and resolve conflict. Appreciate complexity and multiple viewpoints.
  • Increase self-knowledge, clarify values, and evaluate the ethics of decisions.
  • Take a stand or take action that helps create a more peaceful, respectful world.
Budget  $80,000.00
Category  Youth Development, General/Other Youth Leadership
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years) Families Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent
Program Short-Term Success 
The following measures indicate our short-term success
  • 80% of participants in the initial PEACE PAL program will choose to be active in the PEACE LEADER program.
  • 65% of parents of participants will be active in our PEACE LEADER program by volunteering, participating in our parent programs, and/or initiating invitations to their religious celebrations and services (e.g. bar mitzvahs, iftar dinners, services at their churches, mosques and temples).
  • Participants will track their progress in our “Peace Leader Passport” in 9 areas of development including Conflict Resolution, Leadership, Global Perspective, Values and Ethical Decision-Making, Communication, and Peace-Making in Everyday Life.
  • Program participants will report, in their own words, that their PEACE LEADER experiences give them the understanding and the courage to dispel the rumors, hate speech, and bigotry they hear in their home communities about the “other” whom they’ve come to know and respect.
Program Long-Term Success 
Far too many people grow up without the training or confidence necessary to manage life’s inevitable conflicts. Conflict exists all around us and we believe healthy conflict management skills to be a critical aspect of youth development. A deeply held respect for diversity and the ability to foster healthy relationships within a diverse setting is critical for the advancement of our societies and the realization of peace.
 
Our PEACE LEADER Program gives our participants substantial training and experience in conflict prevention and management while nurturing their innate sense of hope for peaceful resolution so that a new generation will emerge who are fully capable of confronting society’s most destructive conflicts. We believe youth hold the key to a peaceful cultural shift: an unwavering faith in the “impossible.” We are committed to their long-term embrace of this hope while giving them the necessary leadership skills, experiences and opportunities to lead us to peaceful solutions.
Program Success Monitored By 
The PEACE LEADER program has an interfaith team that designs, implements, and conducts formative evaluation of our program components. It includes educators from the three Abrahamic religions, a child psychologist, and a professor with extensive research experience in Israel.

Currently in the third year of our development of a six-year program, we have demonstrated our ability to engage youth and their parents and to effectively design and implement programs which blend a diverse group of participants from different religious and cultural backgrounds in a mutually enriching way.
Examples of Program Success 
  • 88% of the participants in the initial 2-week summer program are active in our year-round PEACE LEADER program.
  • 78% of the parents of participants have attended social/educational events to build relationships with one another and increase their own knowledge of other religions.
  • 66% of current parents are volunteers for our organization.
  • Participants report that they’ve been involved in peace-making in countless small and large ways. One Dorchester resident reports that he makes special efforts to greet others who don’t have a lot of friends. A girl who attends the Rashi Reform Jewish Independent School has advocated for her entire 8th grade class, on its graduation trip to Israel, to meet with Kids4Peace Jerusalem staff and participants including her Israeli and Palestinian friends. An Arab Muslim participant says that “I live in a world where everyone is pro-Palestinian but after being in Kids4Peace I see now that it’s very complicated and we must all be more open-minded and peaceful.”

CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

From the beginning, K4P Boston has been committed to achieving diversity – on multiple levels. We actively recruit participants in under-served communities such as Dorchester and in more affluent, such as Lexington. We seek diversity within religious traditions, a range from liberal to orthodox in all Abrahamic faiths. Our participants’ ethnic mix reflects the Boston area’s diversity. Our current community includes black, white, Latino, Cape Verdean, Chinese-American, Pakistani-American and Arab-American children.
 
We are committed to true interfaith leadership at every level of our organization as well as to making our programs available to all young people and their families despite economic challenges.  Over half of our participants have received at least partial scholarship for our programs with some receiving full scholarships. All our PEACE LEADER year-round program fees are on a sliding scale. We are fully committed to overcoming any and all economic barriers, including by offering transportation assistance, to all of our year-round programs.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
