In 2017, Civic Leadership Foundation and After School Matters partnered to launch Peacemakers, a summer intensive program to train 1,000 Chicago youth in conflict resolution and leadership. 1,000 youth leaders will act as Peacemakers in their neighborhoods, identifying needs in their communities and then designing and implementing their own projects to meet those needs across the city.
