Isaiah 43’s Young Peacemakers Leadership Council is inspired by the bible verse, “Let peace begin with me.” This student-run group is dedicated to becoming the peacemakers of our time. Twelfth grader Brooke reflects, “YPLC is a great opportunity to share my thoughts and opinions with people my age. I believe I made a great choice in joining because I have made life-changing and lifelong friends.”
The teenaged leaders dedicate themselves to being informed about current events and Catholic Social Teaching, as well as remaining faithful to a commitment to being a positive role model. Jada, a senior in high school, shared that YPLC helped her feel like she was an active participant in leading her city into a brighter future. She shares, “I want to be a part of the solution to the problems in my community. Nothing can be solved alone. YPLC is a group of young peacemakers coming up with ways to change the world around us.”
This group meets the second and fourth Wednesday of each month and stays engaged with the community by participating in service projects, conversations with local leaders, and field trips. Contact Theresa Nguyen at email@example.com to learn more or apply to participate.
