Our Mission

Peace through Play is a student-run organization founded and based at Northeastern University. We partner with local schools throughout the greater Boston area to promote the power of play in children's social, cognitive, and physical development. Through games and activities, our volunteers explore themes such as self awareness, advocacy, and empowerment. We try to take our curriculum one step further and challenge our students to put these ideas into action to change the world.
