Young Women for Peace

Are you a young woman aged 16-19 years old? Do you live in Liverpool? Would you like to become a peacebuilder? Are you interested in resolving conflict in your community?

Young Women for Peace will run from March to May 2017 in Liverpool. The course is free to attend, and participants will receive a Level 1 Open Awards qualification.

The course will cover the following topics:

  • Critical thinking skills
  • Self-awareness and identity
  • Conflict resolution
  • Understanding extremism
  • Public speaking, dialogue and debating
  • Establishing a network of leaders

Young Women for Peace will consist of local sessions in Liverpool, followed by a residential at the Peace Centre in Warrington. The structure has some flexibility to cater for the availability of the participants.

The course is run by the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace. It was founded by the parents of 12-year-old Tim Parry and support by the parents of 3-year-old Johnathan Ball who were tragically killed as a direct result of the IRA’s 1993 bombing of Warrington. The Foundation works nationally and internationally for peace and nonviolent conflict resolution.
