Father Josh Thomas

Chair of the Board

Father Josh Thomas joins us at the Alliance as an ordained Episcopal priest, dialogue facilitator, and the Executive Director of one of our member organizations, Kids4Peace. As many of our members know, one of the best ways to transform conflict is through youth. Father Thomas recognizes this and has engaged with that understanding for nearly two decades.
In 2002, he coordinated and led a US State Department Youth Leadership Program for a multi-ethnic group of high school students from Bosnia-Herzegovina. His work in both the public and private sectors, and experience with multi-ethnic youth groups allows him to see the importance of working cross-border, as many of ALLMEP’s member organizations do.
