Peace Learning Center supports communities in redefining peace through equity, social emotional learning and the implementation of innovative practices. 



This month Peace Learning Center would like to spotlight Anna Ward as our intern. 


Anna is a Human Services student at Ivy Tech Community College and has lived in Indianapolis for just over three years. After living in five states, she's so glad to call this wonderful city home! Anna chose Peace Learning Center as her internship site this semester because of the focus on restorative justice and equity, and the commitment to bring these concepts into schools in the Indianapolis area. Anna says, "Expanding my knowledge of these concepts as well as the area of anti-racism are my biggest goals for my internship." She has worked with children for years and looks forward to the opportunity to co-facilitate workshops in local schools. After she graduates from Ivy Tech, she has been accepted to IUPUI and plans to complete a Bachelors in Social Work. Her goal is to receive a Masters in Counseling. 

Thank you Anna for everything you have done for our organization. We are very grateful to have you on our team!
