Developing the Leaders of
Today and Tomorrow
GNWP’s Young Women Leaders for Peace program helps young women and girls gain the skills and build confidence to become leaders in their communities. In countries experiencing conflict and crisis, young women and girls are often overlooked and can be the last to eat, get medical care, or an education. But when their leadership and peacebuilding potentials are realized, they are a positive force that transform communities and societies for the better.
Young Women Leaders for Peace in Action:
Young Women Leaders in Our Program:
Improve their literacy and numeracy skills.

Use social media to build peace and advocate for women’s rights and gender equality.
Use participatory theater as an instrument for community dialogue.
Build positive movements for change in their communities by developing leadership skills and understanding their rights, laws and policies.
Learn how to share their knowledge by going out to local communities to teach the same skills to other young women and girls who have little or no access to formal education.
