2017 PeaceJamSlam  Mentor Application 

Thank you for your interest in being a PeaceJam MENTOR at the PeaceJam Slam on Saturday, November 4th, 2017 at Manual High School! You'll get to spend the day developing your own leadership and investing in the next generation of peacebuilders. Here's what you need to know:

What is a PeaceJam Mentor?
A PeaceJam Mentor is a person who facilitates small groups of middle and high school youth participants at the annual one day youth conference. Mentors create the space and energy of the event to ensure that all participants feel welcomed and safe to engage in the challenge topics of social justice and world peace. We welcome all Mentors - shy, outgoing, experienced leaders, first-time mentors, activists, educators, you name it! You will be paired with another Mentor and we will make sure you're well trained before the event. You must be a near-peer, which means college-aged (don't have to actually be in college but must be between the ages of 18 and 25).
