PeacePlayers Has Fellowship Openings Starting In 2017!

fellowSince 2001, PeacePlayers has recruited 90 outstanding post-collegiate scholar athletes as International Fellows to serve two-year terms with its programs around the world. PPI Fellows provide basketball expertise, serve as mentors and role models, and act as neutral facilitators for PPI coaches and participants. Fellows also benefit from an exceptional educational and professional experience and are at the forefront of a worldwide movement to use sport as a vehicle for social change.

“As a player and coach I saw first hand how basketball could be used as a tool to bring so many different types of people together. I am extremely excited to be a part of something so special with PPI.”-Courtney Boylan PPI-ME 2014-2015

Upon completing their fellowships, PPI alumni have gone on to careers in fields including finance, technology, sports management, social entrepreneurship, and international development and have attended graduate schools including the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, Columbia University Business School, and Tuft’s Fletcher School of Diplomacy.

“My time with PPI-SA has taught me lessons of acceptance, hope, and humanity. Sport has a unique and powerful way of teaching these ideas. Through basketball, I hope to continue to teach and inspire. PPI-SA has helped me discover that I will never be done learning and growing through sport.” – Kristin Degou PPI-SA
