What is the Youth Investment Fund (YIF)? 

"Peace First is like a person saying: I trust you, and I believe in what you want to do."

- Camila Trinanes, Peace First Ambassador in Peru

At its core, Peace First’s Youth Investment Fund is an invitation to be a part of a youth-led movement for social change. Your contribution represents the unwavering belief that young changemakers possess the vision, passion, and determination to create a better world. Your support provides young changemakers with the financial resources, mentorship, and skills they need to make a positive impact in their community.

Social change is not a one-time project, it is an ongoing collaborative process; and it is at the heart of our mission at Peace First to invest in our incredible young changemakers who have the passion and capability to create the changes that we want and need in the world.


Our Collective Purpose 

At Peace First, we firmly believe that 'in giving, we receive.' Philanthropy is a privilege that transcends wealth and status—it is a responsibility we all share. By contributing to the Youth Investment Fund, you are not just making a financial contribution; you are sending a powerful message of solidarity to our international community of young changemakers. Your support paves the way for a brighter future, driven by the passion and dedication of our youth leaders.

Join us in embracing the power of a grassroots circle of support that mirrors the determination of changemakers worldwide. The Youth Investment Fund is dedicated to building a global network of investors who champion and nurture the youth-led movement for social change through personally meaningful contributions.


Why Invest in Youth Changemaking? 

Across the globe, 1.6 billion young individuals hold the keys to innovative solutions for many of the world’s issues, yet so many lack the essential tools, skills, connections, and funding needed to bring their visions to life. Peace First bridges this gap and empowers young changemakers with the necessary resources and guidance to turn their dreams into tangible impact. Imagine a world where the boundless energy and creativity of each of these young minds is harnessed to create meaningful and lasting change. That is the world we are actively building. 

For over 30 years, Peace First has been at the forefront of this transformative youth-led movement. We've nurtured over 30,000 Young Changemakers in 166 countries, supporting more than 13,000 projects worldwide. But our work is far from over.

This is where YOU come in. Your support is not just a contribution; it's an investment in a brighter, more compassionate future. By joining us, you become a crucial part of our circle of generosity, amplifying the voices of these young leaders and propelling their ideas into action.

Together, let's build a world where the passion of youth meets the resources they need to create lasting change. Join us in empowering the Young Changemakers who are shaping our future. Consider a monthly investment and, together, we'll rewrite the story of what is possible.
