Youth in Action Award Goes to Rachel Harrison

Rachel Harrison, who represents Baltimore Yearly Meeting on FPT’s Coordinating Committee, received a $1,000 award from Youth in Action for organizing the introduction of the Alternatives to Violence Project to Ghana (see PTN v3i2). An article about her work was published in the Summer 2001 issue of Peace Teams News. The awards are meant both to highlight important projects and to reward young people who are devoting themselves to making a difference as volunteer leaders. A council of young people reviewed the applications. For more information on Youth in Action and lists of this year’s winners both internationally and in the US, see
