Luke Center for Public Service

Luke Leaders

The Luke Leaders Program is a hub of new, innovative, youth-led ideas that tackle some of our community’s most profound issues.

If you are a student in grades 9 – 12 who has aspirations to build peace, organize community, to fight injustice, to take a stand, or to change the world, then Luke Leaders is for you!

How Does Luke Leaders Work?

Luke Leaders is a uniquely youth-led program created by Ceeds of Peace and Luke Center for Public Service.  Each year we will launch a new cohort of Luke Leaders who are led through a flexible, facilitated, and mentor-supported approach to executing some of their big ideas. Each cohort consists of predetermined teams ready to tackle a big idea project together. The teams will be supported by the Luke Center, Ceeds of Peace staff, and a professional mentor with expertise in the area most closely related to the team’s project. Each Luke Leaders cohort will have an opportunity to present their projects to the public through a planned showcase event.


Information about 2021 – 2022 Luke Leaders will be available in September 2021.
