The Peace Education Program strengthens communities and schools by training youth and adults to build and sustain positive relationships. We do this by providing learning experiences to reduce violence, enhance personal integrity and foster mutual respect. We teach conflict resolution, peer mediation and prejudice reduction.

Giving Youth More Than A Fighting Chance Since 1982

It all started In 1982 when Peace Education Program taught conflict resolution in one classroom, in one school. Today we have a network of 88 schools in Jefferson County where mediation and/or conflict resolution is practiced every day. Today we impact 20,000 youths annually.
