COPA Mission:

Youth and Peace Conference Mission:
To collaboratively organize and present an annual youth-led conference targeted for youth ages 13-24 that explores and highlights diverse issues regarding violence prevention and peace practices through workshops, speakers, performances, dialogue circles and a resource fair.

What We Do

The Culture of Peace Alliance (COPA) provides fiscal sponsorship for a range of community-based peacebuilding and violence prevention programs and groups. The Annual Youth and Peace Conference is one of the programs affiliated with COPA. The Youth and Peace Conference (YPC) started in 2012 and this year is presenting the 10th Annual YPC.

Each year's conference is planned and presented by a Youth Leadership Team made up primarily of high school age youth, who select the theme and title for the event, along with keynote speakers, workshops, and special activities to highlight the theme. The Youth Team works collaboratively with an Adult Logistics Team composed of representatives from interested community organizations and businesses.
