To reduce the negative expression of conflict by mobilizing and deploying resources for conflict resolution training and interventions.
What we do
We provide peace education and conflict resolution intervention programs to K-12 schools around the globe.
Why we do it
Because conflict exists and is a fact of life, we believe people should possess the knowledge and skills to peacefully manage and resolve it.
We believe peace is a process, an outcome, a state of mind, a lifestyle, and a choice. We believe peace can be achieved by empowering people with the knowledge and skills to peacefully resolve conflict.
THE NATURE OF CONFLICT
Conflict is everywhere and impossible to avoid. While it is not inherently bad or negative, conflict can be expressed negatively and produce negative outcomes if not managed properly. When peacefully and effectively managed, conflict can be a force for producing positive change. This is the purpose of Project: Peace Peddlers and Project: Peace Now. Our programs empower teachers and students with the knowledge and skills to peacefully and effectively manage conflict and provide the space and expertise for peacefully resolving acute instances of conflict.
We take a partnership approach to increase peace in the world, recognizing the greatest impact is achieved through collective effort. As a peacebuilding organization, we view our individual donors, corporate sponsors, and clients as partners in the effort to build peace in classrooms, schools, and communities. We pride ourselves in working with our partners to provide peace education and conflict intervention programs to schools around the globe. Simply put, proceeds from our Peace Academy, Peace Forum and Peace Shop help support our school-focused peace programs.
