Request a Speaker
Behind PeacePlayers International’s mission is faith in an extraordinarily simple idea: we’re all better off when we work as a team. For that reason, we’re always happy to share what we do with others interested in learning more about our work.
PPI Co-Founder Brendan Tuohey speaks at his high school alma mater, Gonzaga College High School.
If you would like a member of our staff to speak to your team, club, class or organization, please let us know. We have a broad and deep pool of passionate individuals at PeacePlayers International, with experience all over the world at the intersection of sports and peacebuilding. Though we won’t be able to accommodate every request due to the limits of time, travel and resources, we’ll do our best to connect with you and your group and share our successes and challenges using sport to unite divided communities.
As we won’t be able to visit with every group that’s interested, we don’t charge for these appearances. However, we do ask that groups that have the means consider making a donation to our programs if a staff member speaks to them. There is always more to do than there is time in the day, and these donations help support our programs while we share their stories with you.
There is no minimum, but below are some suggested guidelines for your group, organization, team or class to consider:
- $1,000 supports the work of one of our coaches for a year, working with at least 12 young people from mixed backgrounds in a divided community. (Most appropriate if you are seeking a speaker for an entire day and the event requires significant travel or the development of new, unique content.)
- $500 supports the participation of two young people in our programs for an entire year. (Most appropriate if you are seeking a speaker for an entire day, and the event does not require significant travel or the development of new, unique content.)
- $250 supports one young person in our program for an entire year. (Most appropriate if you are seeking a speaker for a half-day or less.)
Depending on the costs involved, we may also ask that you or your group consider covering the direct expenses associated with traveling to your event.
If these amounts are not feasible for you or your group, please reach out to us to discuss your needs, and we'll do our best to accomodate.
