PeaceJam Southeast Conference
Join the PeaceJamily as we welcome high school students from the Southeast Region and our Nobel Prize Laureate, former President of Costa Rica, Oscar Arias Sanchez.

President Oscar Arias won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1987 for his efforts to end civil wars then raging in several other Central American countries.He is also a recipient of the Albert Schweitzer Prize for Humanitarianism and a trustee of Economists for Peace and Security. In 2003, he was elected to the Board of Directors of the International Criminal Court's TrustFund for Victims. He is also currently a member of the Club de Madrid, a nonprofit composed of 81 former leaders of democratic states, that works to strengthen democratic institutions.

Students will be able to meet him and hear his story about his journey as he dealt with turmoil in a non-violent manner. In addition, they will be able to present to him and the rest of the community their global call to action projects.

This will be a weekend packed with fun activities, inspirational moments and service opportunities. Let the fun begin!
