Peace Days was inspired by Rotary World Peace Partners in 2010. Peace Days grew out of a desire to celebrate the United Nations' International Day of Peace, designated as September 21st each year.

In 2010, Winnipeg celebrated with a Concert for Peace, where music was the medium to communicate the importance of working toward a more peaceful and compassionate society.

Peace Days evolved, and in 2015 became a two week-long festival with community events spanning from September 11 through to the International Day of Peace on September 21.

This year, from September 15-24, 2017, Peace Days will include a diverse, stimulating program of events throughout Winnipeg to appeal to all ages.

Our Mission: "To create community through fellowship and service, to eliminate poverty and disease and to provide knowledge and opportunity, especially for young people."
 
Our Vision: "Being an exemplary club in meeting its mission, through a sustainable vibrant membership."

Our goal in 2017 was to raise approximately $20,000 to support two local Youth Projects in Winnipeg - CanU and Newcomer Youth Educational Support Services Coalition
                                                      
The Rotary Leadership Circle (RLC) program, established in 1996,  is a youth leadership development and summer work project for 165 youth ages 10 – 14 years of age. During  a six-week period in the summer, Youth  Leaders become positively engaged within their neighbourhood by taking on leadership and volunteer roles. Youth Leaders who complete 60 hours of service can earn $200 towards a supervised shopping trip before the start of school.
