Please join us as we work to empower a generation of youth leaders to transform the world. The Whitaker Peace & Development Initiative (WPDI) relies on support from committed global citizens to deliver its programs and services around the world. Your donations will support WPDI’s efforts to empower people to make positive changes to their communities. In communities impacted by conflict, the Youth Peacemaker Network (YPN) – WPDI’s flagship program – seeks to bring together young women and men who want to be forces for good and voices for change. We empower youth leaders to create coalitions of peacebuilders who can work together to plant and nurture the seeds of peace in their communities and their countries. The Domestic Harmonizer Program is a high-impact educational program that seeks to build the social and emotional health of students in the United States by promoting approaches to teaching conflict resolution skills in classrooms. This program gives youth the skills they need to be able to identify conflict in their lives and respond in a positive way. WPDI is an established 501(c)(3) non-profit entity. Donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
