In a time when youth violence is on the rise, and with the poverty gap only increasing, Power to Change is a unique film that looks at the simplest solution: helping human beings discover their innate goodness. The acclaimed documentary highlights how the Peace Education Program is a powerful tool for this process of discovery.

Produced independently by Celebrate Life CIC, Power to Change tells the stories of five people in London: EJ a young man drawn into gang culture from an early age; Lorraine a grieving mother who lost her son to knife-crime as he saved another boy; Gerald, founder of Impact Brixton, who learned to navigate one of the city’s most dangerous neighborhoods after emigrating from Ghana as a child; Errol a repeat offender with 74 previous convictions; and Nate a former gang-member who was brutally stabbed by a childhood friend. The stories are woven together by Kaysen, a teacher, who passionately believes in supporting young people.

Their journeys intertwine as Prem Rawat and the Peace Education Program help them learn how to move beyond the past with inner strength and wisdom.

Power to Change was produced independently by Celebrate Life CIC, a UK organization that brings people together through film, workshops and music events to engage, connect and make better choices in life. Thank you to the Celebrate Life team for making this film!
