Peacebuilders Initiative

As a part of the summer program at CTU, students gather together to experience different forms of worship and prayer.

The Peacebuilders Initiative is an innovative program of the Bernardin Center that prepares Catholic high school youth for leadership roles in peacemaking, reconciliation, and conflict transformation, and inspires them to consider ministry as a life choice.

Peacebuilders are high school students with vision and enthusiasm, who believe in peacebuilding and reconciliation, and are willing to explore faith in a community of other teens and mentors. Through the Peacebuilders Initiative, CTU wants to tap the potential of a new generation of faith leaders.

The Peacebuilders Initiative is funded by Lilly Endowment Inc., in their effort to create programs that engage young people in theological learning and encourage them to explore Christian ministry as their life's work
