The mission for Peace by Piece is to positively influence and mobilize communities of color, particularly youth and young adults, through education, organizing and economics to realize sustainable, sovereign and equitable Black communities.


The vision for Peace by Piece New Orleans is that young black people value themselves, each other and their community, realize their capacity to create change and take actions to make their community healthy and whole.



Membership is open to youth and young adults ages 16 to 26. PxP members meet biweekly to organize, study, and build community with other young Black social justice activists. Members also plan events, actions, and projects.


Internships are available to youth and young adults ages 16 to 26. Because we value young people’s time, all interns are offered a stipend, service hours, or college credit.       

Summer and Afterschool

PxP offers free afterschool programming and summer camps in New Orleans' Hollygrove and Desire neighborhoods. This service is available to all school-aged children. Our youth and young adult interns train program participants using our Sustainable Communities Curriculum. The curriculum educates youth about Black history, urban farming, and community organizing through a social justice lens.
