Join Brian Kelly, founder of The Points Guy and Points for Peace, as well as PeaceJam, as they travel to Accra, Ghana for a two-day PeaceJam conference hosted by Nobel Peace Prize Winner Leymah Gbowee. This experience includes business class airfare on Delta from New York and accommodations at The Movenpick from June 24-27, 2016. 

Leymah Gbowee was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2011 for her nonviolent efforts to end the civil war in Liberia. Outraged by the senseless violence caused by the civil war in her country, Gbowee became a leading voice for peace. Gbowee's outreach to Christian and Muslim women led to the Women of Liberia Mass Action for Peace Movement, which eventually turned the tide and led to peace accords, as well as the election of the first female head of state in Africa.

PeaceJam uses the teachings of 13 Nobel Peace Prize winners to mentor youth around the world as well as engage young people in social action projects that directly impact their communities. Its goal is to raise the next generation of peacemakers. PeaceJam conferences are life-changing weekends where youth have the opportunity to work directly with a Nobel Peace Prize winner to inspire change in themselves, their communities, and the world. This conference brings together hundreds of like-minded youth to learn directly from Leymah Gbowee, participate in workshops, and engage in service projects that address the toughest issues facing their community.

Activities include:

  • Taking part in the local service project and workshops alongside Peacejam youth
  • Joining PeaceJam and TPG staff at the conference opening and closing ceremonies
  • Attending the PeaceJam welcome dinner
  • Lunch with Brian Kelly
  • Photo opportunity and meet and greet with Leymah Gbowee 
  • Farewell dinner with PeaceJam and TPG staff
