Meetings take place approximately once a month, and kids will also attend the Kids4Peace Seattle camp from August 5-17, 2015 at the Treacy Levine Center in Mt. Vernon, where they will be joined by 18 youth from the Jerusalem area (6 Muslims, 6 Jews, and 6 Christians).

Check out stories about our 2014 camp in the Seattle Times, the JT News, the Huffington Post, and on KUOW.
Kids4Peace began in Jerusalem during the Second Intifada in 2002. Its mission is to transform divided societies into communities of lasting peace, through a long-term investment in youth leaders and their families. Kids4Peace brings Jewish, Christian, and Muslim girls and boys to international summer camps in the United States and operates year-round after-school programs in their home communities; the year-round program in Seattle focuses on local issues of social justice, such as hunger, homelessness, and racism. The six-year continuum of activities focuses on interfaith dialogue, cultural exchange, leadership development, and practices of nonviolent social change.
