Is your School Educating for a Public Purpose?
Peace Works offers travel scholarships to students in schools with a commitment to inclusive global education.
We are proud to provide partial scholarships for schools adopting our California-Mexico Crossing Borders program. For five days, students explore the trans-border region of San Diego and Tijuana and document the stories of people separated by deportation. Students understand the complex issues surrounding forced migration, asylum-seeking, the border wall, NAFTA and the socio-economic forces linking the U.S. its southern neighbors. Scholarship grantees must demonstrate a commitment to civic engagement. LEARN MORE
Crossing Borders: “Why go abroad when we have issues at home?”
Now more than ever, young people recognize that the answers to global problems include solutions of unity, not division. By funding the journey across a divide of ignorance to understanding, the Friendship Fund empowers students working for peace. Our Crossing Borders program ignites students to take civic action on issues that matter: Immigration, Environment, and Economics. By teaching effective utilization of our representative democracy, our program equips student leaders with creative activist tool kits. Students return energized with passion (and facts!) to support local, state and federal policies for good.
How Does it Work?
Reserve a Thursday – Monday (or longer) during your school calendar for the California-Tijuana Crossing Borders experience. The Friendship Fund will sponsor the full cost for two students, with a minimum of 15 paying travelers. Teachers travel free. CONTACT US. Our team supports you through the easy process.
