Peace Services and Voluntary Peace Work

 

Peace Service projects are often focused on bringing support to countries in conflict or post-conflict situations. Many members of the movement are active in peace services. Some of them choose to live and work as a volunteer for a short or long time in another country to assist local civil society organisations in their daily work.

Peace services also give youth from countries with mandatory military service a non-violent means of performing their duty to their country and the world.
