Selected participants will implement their own community projects, participate in an international roundtable and lead the development of a toolkit focussed on developing youth-driven engagement strategies in atrocity prevention efforts.

Interested applicants should send application requests to Devon Gulbrandsen ( and send in completed applications no later than March 30, 2021.
