The 2011 Project: AK-47 Summer Tour

A vital component of our stateside child soldier advocacy is setting up advocacy and fundraising stations at events all over the country.  Every summer we gather a team, rent a van and hit the road with intentions to rally a tribe of people who care about the present global emergency of child soldiering. If we’re coming anywhere near you, JOIN US!




Derek: Based out of Franklin, Tennessee, Derek is the newest staff partner of PAK47 and the summer tour leader. With a background in non-profit management and team fundraising, as well as being one of the more enthusiastic humans on earth, he is a vital component to our current tribe.

Jonathon: From Indiana, Jonathon is our beloved summer intern. Studying Public Relations and Conflict Resolution, he is also assiting the organization with growth and development.

Abby: Her home is Indiana and her passion is human rights. Abbie is a pleasant suprise volunteer and has won over all of our hearts.

Tom: Based out of Nashville as a drummer for the band Throwing Gravity, Tom is our token rock star team member. And though music and business are his dream, his passion for justice is contagious.

Brandon: As a singer/songwriter out of Mississippi, Brandon joins our team this summer for the first time. After one encounter with him, you’ll find he cares about the issue of child soldiering deeply.

Jeremy: A staffer for 3.5 years here in Franklin, TN, Jeremy has helped build Project: AK-47 from the ground up. He joins the summer team for a couple events with his lovely new fiancée Suzie.

Suzie: Marrying into the PAK47 community, Suzie is our favorite Brit and has been recruited in for the tour. Her past in non-profit grass roots management in the UK is a history well received by the organization.

  1. If you’d be interested I’d be honored to have you in at The Gear during one of our shows. You could set up a booth and have some stage time.
    Let me know your thoughts!


  2. Hi im theresa, i have been going to these music festivals for the past two summers to visit my brother who is a part of the Stand True team, for Christ centered pro-life work, i recently met two girls from your group at the Creation East festivel in PA and i talked with them several times throughout the week. i would love if possible to get more information on how to get involved with this mission because it is something that i feel very passionatly about. even if i could just possibly get to volunteer for you guys at some of these festivals that would be amazing. i honestly have alot of time that im not quite sure what to do with and i would love to see if i could even intern with AK-47 next summer or even for all of next year, i have done one year of community college and im going to be graduating this comming year so by 2012 i will have an associates degree, and im not really looking to go back to school right away, i would really love to travel(idealy to India), but i need to find a way to get into this mission before i can even hope to do any work out of the country. so im not rich, i have enough money to pay my own way with whatever but i do have my time, health, and life, all of these are wonderful gifts that God has granted me and they are all i have to offer, if you could use me i would be most greatful, just write me back whenever i look forword to hearing from whoever wants to talk to me:)
    Thank you so much, God be with you,
