to Piece of Peace
We are a diverse group of at-risk teenagers working to lift-up all youth in our communities.
Hopes to Fill a Pack Project
Hopes to Fill a Pack Project began in November of 2019. Piece of Peace fills donated or made backpacks with everyday toiletries, necessities, clothes, and emergency contact numbers along with handwritten notes to assist displaced teens. The intention is to help these kids feel a sense of humanity and decency as well as feel seen.
Piece of Peace Shelter
Piece of Peace teens are committed to working towards creating a safe space and shelter for displaced teens in the region. Their hope is to create a facility where students can shelter for the night, access medical and mental health personnel, and find a sense of love and belonging.
Hey, my name is Maxx. I started Piece of Peace because I wanted to be there for kids who don't have anyone. Being an LGBTQ+ kid, my first thought when I came out was that I might get kicked out of my home and have no where to go. So, with Piece of Peace I wanted to created a community who could help other teens that could have been me.
I’m Lizie Stark and I’m a senior at Yampah Mountain High School. I joined Piece of Peace because I wanted to be a part of a movement, that, while it may not fix all negative situations, may make an impact on someone else’s hopefulness and happiness. I pray that we can touch many lives and help the mindsets of the youth. - Update - Lizzie graduated in 2020
Hi, my name is Jacqueline Gomez and I am a student at Yampah Mountain High School. I love helping others and that is why I decided to create Piece of Peace. This way I can help other kids that don't have someone to rely on.
My name is Ashley, I am a confused teenager. I am a senior at Yampah Mountain High School. I like to believe that I am creative and caring in my own way. The reason I'm involved in Piece of Peace is because I think it's really important for people to get help when they need it. And it's a nice thing to know and understand that you're not alone is such a damned world.
