Hands of Peace is a spark, it’s an inspiration, it’s a call to action to go on a journey.

Dialogue is a way of bringing people from a place of not having any hope to a place where they see the human being on the other side and feel there’s a chance to make peace.

I have taken lessons I learned during my summers to heart. They are the background against which I paint my dreams of the future.

I am more confident building relationships, being myself, being vulnerable, and sharing my opinion. I learned how to listen better, but I also learned how to be stronger in sharing my voice.

Hands of Peace changed me inside out. I really didn’t expect that the Hands of Peace program to be as intense as it was. For me, it is a once in a lifetime experience.

This program has helped me so much, and I don’t think I could have found a better environment in which to grow and acquire so many different skills. Thank you for making that possible.

I got a job, and then I got a promotion, and I honestly don’t think I would have been able to do that without the confidence I gained at Hands of Peace. Please keep doing the amazing things you do and make the circle grow even bigger.
