Generations For Peace’s CEO, Mark Clark, Reflects on the Constant Nurturing of his Organization

"We’ve Gone Through Proof of Concept in Very Diverse Conflict Contexts"

What's so special with that SGO.

There are few iconic social good organizations (SGOs) that truly capture the success of the nonprofit sphere. Despite its young age, Generations For Peace just may be one of them. At first glance, its grassroots peace-building mission seems nearly impossible. Asking youths rather than governments to bring about peace may sound a bit naïve. But when you face GFP’s army of young, articulate, peace-pushing volunteers, then you understand that something big is going on here. There seems to be no limit to the organization’s ambition and discipline. What began as a peace-through-sport initiative of the Jordan Olympic Committee has now trained nearly 9,000 peace-building volunteers in 50 countries, with such tools as Arts, Advocacy, Empowerment, and Dialogue for Peace augmenting the original Sport For Peace approach, delivering sustainable impact.

There are few iconic social good organizations (SGOs) that truly capture the success of the nonprofit sphere. Despite its young age, Generations For Peace just may be one of them. At first glance, its grassroots peace-building mission seems nearly impossible. Asking youths rather than governments to bring about peace may sound a bit naïve. But when you face GFP’s army of young, articulate, peace-pushing volunteers, then you understand that something big is going on here. There seems to be no limit to the organization’s ambition and discipline. What began as a peace-through-sport initiative of the Jordan Olympic Committee has now trained nearly 9,000 peace-building volunteers in 50 countries, with such tools as Arts, Advocacy, Empowerment, and Dialogue for Peace augmenting the original Sport For Peace approach, delivering sustainable impact.

In conflict zones, communities often reject other communities, particularly those perceived as different. This is where Generations For Peace makes a difference: the organization mentors young people to bring about powerful and desperately needed social change by building mutual respect, tolerance, and trust through dialogue. Further, GFP recognizes the importance of reflecting deeply on its own work and the many projects it conducts. The organization is constantly innovating, experimenting, evaluating, and then scaling up the projects that work. For instance, the organization is currently growing its programs in response to the Syrian Refugee Crisis by 263%.

Generations For Peace brings its multi-pronged model to bear on all key scoring criteria. In 2015, GFP climbed up the ladder from rank #94 to #32, at a time when many other organizations saw their rank drop or stagnate. To deliver impact as well as innovation at the grassroots level requires dedication to developing a new culture around peace, not to mention a great sense of motivation. Perhaps some of GFP’s drive comes from its CEO, Mark Clark, who has brought passion and discipline to the organization over the last 10 years.

History

Since 2007, when Generations for Peace (GFP) was founded as a peace-through-sport initiative of the Jordan Olympic Committee, our journey has been a quest to turn passion into impact. We have always focused on supporting people to implement grassroots peacebuilding activities in their communities to address burning issues of hatred, intolerance, exclusion, inequality, and violence, which they are passionate about changing. Our quest to ensure their passion and effort secure ever-greater impact has driven the continuous evolution of our approach and our organisation over the last 15 years.

From our initial focus on sport as a vehicle for youth engagement and behaviour change, and as we grew, we have learnt from failures and successes in diverse conflict contexts and evaluated, adapted, and refined our approach to include six tools: sport, arts, advocacy, dialogue, empowerment, and media. Our peacebuilding toolkit has allowed us to easily tailor...

We have always focused on supporting people to implement grassroots peacebuilding activities in their communities to address burning issues of hatred, intolerance, exclusion, inequality, and violence, which they are passionate about changing. Our quest to ensure their passion and effort secure ever-greater impact has driven the continuous evolution of our approach and our organisation over the last 15 years.

From our initial focus on sport as a vehicle for youth engagement and behaviour change, and as we grew, we have learnt from failures and successes in diverse conflict contexts and evaluated, adapted, and refined our approach to include six tools: sport, arts, advocacy, dialogue, empowerment, and media. Our peacebuilding toolkit has allowed us to easily tailor and adapt activities to local situations and target groups, and our programmes often now use a combination of these tools. We have trained over 22,626 volunteers and reached 1,449,208 children, youth, and adults in 52 countries across the Middle East and North Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America. Through all the changes and adaptations, key elements have remained constant along this incredible journey. All our programmes promote four values: youth leadership, community empowerment, active tolerance, and responsible citizenship. In all our work, we focus on four drivers of change:  innovation, quality, impact, and sustainability. Amidst the recent upsurge of hate speech, prejudice, and violent extremism; economic drivers of fragility; persistent barriers to participation for youth, for refugees for girls and women, and those with disabilities; and climate change impacts increasing vulnerabilities, displacement, and conflict risks, we feel the urgency of our mission and growing demand for our support to turn passion to impact. The quest goes on!
