After School Matters (ASM) is a J-Def Peace Project valued partner. https://www.afterschoolmatters.org/
World Chicago visited The J-Def Peace Project @ APO, inviting 12 U.K executive directors of NFP Youth Organizations for a dialogue on common and effective practices. J-Def teens participated in two workshops;
-Teen workshop 1: U.K and J-Def teen
-Teen workshop 2: Iraqui, Kurdish teens and J-Def teens
The goal was to exercise their communication, problem-solving, and social-awareness skills. The groups created 4 portable murals in one hour. The goal was to display the connection between youth despite their place and custom, break barriers to play and paint and find peace.
