Host a Speaker

Report Our Stories
Send our stories to your Yearly or Monthly Meeting newsletters, other organizations, or local newspapers. Distribute copies of PeaceWays with personal stories about why this peace work is important to you.
Form a Local Peace Team
Support your YM Representative, ask your YM to name a representative, and/or let your YM Nominating Committee know you would like to serve in this position. YM Representatives become members of the FPT Council and YM Representative Committee, and may offer your skills to other committees.
Join the FPT Council
Offer your skills in clerking, recording, legal work, finance, fundraising, communications, coordinating and so forth. The council meets on a monthly conference call and annual meeting. It also produces a PeaceQuest conference once a year, following the face-to-face meeting.
Join a Working Group
We seek volunteers to meet monthly on a conference call and do administrative tasks such as recording minutes, in-reach and outreach, publicity, accounting, fundraising, translation, and video documentation. Most of these tasks do not involve travel and can be done from anywhere.
Join the Power of Goodness
We seek writers of new stories, translators of existing stories, artists to solicit children’s illustrations, readers to review submissions, teachers and school counselors to develop programs, and facilitators to conduct short, thematic workshops.
Offer Extended Service
Initiatives match volunteer skills to partner needs. Volunteers are expected to raise funds to cover their own transportation and personal expenses for the duration of their stay.
Visit the African Great Lakes
AGLI seeks work camp volunteers when suitable projects arise, and extended service volunteers to support local partners.
Visit in Asia West Pacific
AWP seeks traveling companions to mentor in peace work and extended service volunteers with skills in AVP, nonviolent preschool education, and library programs.
Visit in Latin America
PLA seeks Spanish-speaking AVP facilitators and extended service volunteers with skills in meditation, non-hegemonic masculinities, restorative justice, and healing from sexual and gender-based violence.
Attend a Training
Sign up for email news from AGLI, AWP or PLA to receive notices on upcoming international peace training opportunities.
Host a Fundraiser
Plan a bake sale, storytelling, house party, soup and bread dinner, concert, collection box or program.
Sponsor a Peace Worker
Sponsor a peace worker from your country of choice to attend a regional or international peace gathering or training. Travel is often highly enriching for them, but beyond their ability to pay.
