Project Description

Country: USA

Location: Chicago

Total Budget: $1,800

Area of Focus: Peace and conflict prevention/resolution

Activity Type: Peace: General

Summary: Peace Ambassadors fromt he Pilot Project will present their work in a PeaceFest-style performance to highlight the full program and potentially recruit Project Participants


Unfortunately, Chicago is being ravaged by violence in many of its south and west side communities on a regular basis. In a recent August 2018 weekend, over 70 people were shot and of those over 10 were killed. The EmceeSkool Pilot Project was a first attempt, with little to no funding, to identify, recruit, train and present community youth to serve as Peace Ambassadors through the use of the Spoken Word art form to inspire other youth to redirect their energies to positive activities and help produce a Culture of Peace throughout the city. This project is to support the culmination of the Pilot, by helping to provide a venue for the Peace Ambassadors to demonstrate the skills they have been developing and to bring in more young people into the fold to begin their journey to becoming Peace Ambassadors as well.

The Graduation and Recruitment event is to be held on Wednesday, September 12th, 2018 at The Promontory, a well-known performance and arts space in Chicago's Hyde Park community (5311 S. Lake Park Ave.) from 7 - 10 pm. Rotarians from our Club will be assisting in pre-event organizing and event-day logistics and support. We will also have an opportunity to speak at the event and highlight Rotary's role and commitment to helping build Peace.
