The Youth Behind the Project
This project was developed by Charles County Interactors who became certified NewGen Peacebuilders and went on to present as one of five teams on the East Coast to present their project at the 2022 Youth & Peace in Action YOUnited Celebration. The team said, "Through our peace project, we hope to uplift community members, specifically youth, who are struggling with their mental health and convince them that they are capable of amazing feats... We hope to support community youth by implementing a mural series that promotes awareness and acceptance of mental health."
