The Great Lakes Peace Center (GLPC Uganda) has organized a one day conference / Slam under the PeaceJam project. This conference will happen on 27th April, 2022 at Makerere University Uganda, which is the official host of the PeaceJam project. The event will be preceded by a Mentors’ Training which will happen on 26th April at the same institution, where PeaceJam youths will be trained on how to conduct sessions, facilitate small group dialogues and organize family discussions. These (mentors) will henceforth be in charge of organizing mentorship sessions for younger PeaceJammers.
This will majorly be a youth conference that will bring together university, secondary and primary students for transformational workshops, mentorship sessions, experience sharing, small group (family) discussions and guest speakers. Also, it will provide a ground for the celebration of the work young people have been doing and the impact they can cause in the communities through their concerted efforts.
