Sarah Dubé, Students for Teaching Peace

2006 Top 20 Under  20™ Award Recipient

After a field trip to see “Teaching Peace in a Time of War”, a documentary about Hetty van Gurp’s work on behalf of Peaceful Schools International in Serbia, Sarah Dubé became motivated to form a group called ‘Students for Teaching Peace’ which is committed to promoting the understanding and respect of all beliefs and cultures, through advocacy, non-violent conflict resolution and education.

Through Students for Teaching Peace they were able to raise enough funds to send 32 youth from across Canada to Serbia to attend a “Youth 2 Youth” Peace Conference.

Upon their return, they hosted a summer camp for 13 Serbian youth.

In 2005 she was recognized with the Lieutenant Governor’s Award.
