Fight for Peace Alliance expands with the addition of eight new members

01/10/2019 – Representatives from eight organisations from across England and Wales have joined the Fight for Peace Alliance having completed three days of intensive training in the Fight for Peace methodology. The training, which took place at the Fight for Peace London Academy in North Woolwich, was composed of interactive sessions covering all areas of Fight for Peace’s programmatic and operational work and the principles which guide it. Topics covered ranged from the Five Pillars methodology, which underpins Fight for Peace’s approach to supporting young people, to implementing Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning and how to approach Communications, Brand and Space.

Alliance Programme Manager Bali Khuman was very encouraged by the outcome of the training:

“This was an absolutely fantastic group to train and we are very excited to see what they will bring to the Fight for Peace Alliance over the coming months. Organisations that take part in Alliance training tend to form very close bonds as they progress through the intensive sessions over the three days, and this group was no exception. This is an excellent indicator of the potential for them to continue to share knowledge and support each other, and members of the wider Alliance, to develop as organisations, and ultimately have an even greater impact on young people. We are really excited to see this process develop and be a part of it.”

Having completed training, participating organisations join the Fight for Peace Alliance. The group will meet again for a further two day training course delivered by Fight for Peace and will progress on to participating fully in Alliance activities which focus on the exchange of knowledge and expertise, through physical and virtual mediums, as a means of building the capacity of organisations to support the personal development of young people.

There are currently over 100 members of the Fight for Peace Alliance, located in five continents worldwide, who are united in having completed training in the Fight for Peace methodology and in their dedication to supporting the growth and development of young people in their communities.
