Our mission is to create peace by empowering children, families, and communities.
We all encounter violence, from global wars to bullies in schools, intolerance, and our increasing inability to connect with, respect, and be kind to each other. These experiences contribute to a cycle that is at the root of so many problems in the world.
With over twenty years of experience, Peace Village teaches children, youth, and families practical and concrete skills in conflict resolution, empathy, creating inner peace, connecting with the natural world, and collaborative leadership. By focusing on these skills, we can help address some of the most challenging issues in our communities.
The Peace Village curriculum is focused on using the first three classes, Mindfulness, Connecting with Nature, and Media Literacy to prepare students for the development of real skill with our fourth class in Conflict Resolution.
We focus on teaching students to build inner strength as they learn to transform conflict and become mindful peace builders. Peace Village empowers each person to make significant changes in the world. Since its inception, thousands of people have participated in our programs throughout the nation. Peace Village creates a place to come together, to learn, and to practice peace building.
We encourage community organizations, educational groups, and faith-based organizations to come together to support a Peace Village program in their communities.
