The International Association of Youth and Students for Peace (IAYSP) Founded by Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, affectionately called Mother Moon. She established IAYSP in February 2017. In 1960 she was blessed in marriage to the Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon (1920 – 2012). Together, with her husband of 52 years, they devoted their lives to laying the foundation for a world of universal peace and prosperity—centered on faith and family.
After decades of supporting, investing in, and developing numerous youth-related programs, Mother Moon created IAYSP to raise young people to be the hope of the world. She has traveled the globe, spoken in the halls of congresses around the world, including at the United Nations, and worked together with the heads of state and government, even Nobel laureates. Yet, she still finds some of her greatest hope and joy in being with young people.
A global family of young people building a world of peace with true love.
To advance world peace by empowering youth and students to become global citizens through character education and peace projects supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Human beings have a duty to deal with and manage ourselves and our environment to a degree unparallel in other living beings. By fulfilling responsibility, we find our greatest freedom, highest value and fulfill our noblest ideals.
INTEGRITY Defined as “the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles,” integrity begins within each of us, by uniting our words and deeds.
Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of others as if they were our own. The most natural environment to develop our hearts to empathize with others is in the family. This heart of familial love is then brought into society and creates a culture of peace.
SERVICE Living for others is the foundation and indispensable principle needed to create good character within us and true love between people.
