Sarah Wilkinson
Founder & Executive Director

Sarah Wilkinson received her B.A. in Cultural Anthropology from the University of Illinois, and in the year immediately following worked as a VISTA. It was during this experience that her desire to work for social justice was ignited and where she developed the skills required for community engagement. Following her VISTA service, she traveled extensively around the world. In 2007 she combined her long-time commitment to peace and education with her interest in international issues by founding Project PeacePal. In addition to working with PeacePal, Sarah teaches a course on Global Engagement at the University of New Mexico.
