08 Apr Partner Spotlight: Peace Education Program
The Peace Education Program strengthens communities and schools by training youth and adults to build and sustain positive relationships. We teach conflict resolution, peer mediation and prejudice reduction. Peace Ed teaches youth how to interrupt the cycle of violence and trauma by handling their own anger, de-escalating conflicts, respecting diversity, and standing up for one another. These youth leaders mediate conflicts in their schools and neighborhoods, creating islands of safety and respect, oftentimes in a sea of violence.
Adults can join us for professional development trainings in cooperative games, conflict resolution, mediation and leadership development. Teens can participate in our PeaceCasters Summer Camp June 13 – 16.
