2nd Annual High School Interfaith Conference: A Call to Action for
Boston-Area Teens

On March 6th, Kids4Peace Boston hosted 70 interfaith youth and their advisors from local faith communities for the 2nd Annual Kids4Peace Boston High School Interfaith Conference. Our high school participants planned and led the conference, offering discussions and workshops on "how to repair the world".

K4PB leaders ended the day with a call to action, asking all to engage their networks about the dangers of assumptions and stereotypes. To help participants “change the story” and commit to being a voice for peace in their own communities, they created and presented a social media video for all to share. Take a moment to watch their video and click here for more details about the conference.  

We are hiring!
