“To Solve the Injustice of bullying, school violence, and intolerance, we will address the lack of powerful peer conversations about nonviolence, peace, and justice, by training and empowering high school students to teach peace and build compassion in their communities.”
Hi, team. I’m Bobby and I work wth Peace First. I think this project is awesome and is so important. Is this project primarily focused on in-school communities? Or beyond?
Bobby, we’re primarily focused on work with in-school communities, but not exclusively. For instance, our Peace Team at Oakland Mills High School, in Columbia MD, teaches our curriculum to children at a local community center rather than in middle and elementary schools. Our curriculum focuses on issues of peace and justice and applying the concepts of problem-solving and conflict resolution to scenarios both in school and out. While our delivery model is generally school-based, we hope to have impact that goes beyond the campus!
