Teaching peace has never been more important since we started back in 1997. Each day is a new beginning and peace can start with just one person.
Thank you to Indianapolis Public Schools for approving a new $108,000 contract that supports our One Indy Schools where we engage all students, teachers and as many parents as possible in social and emotional learning and restorative practices to improve schools in high needs neighborhoods.
While many schools are on fall break, others are busy taking field trips for fall programs at our center located in Eagle Creek Park. This week we set a record program day with a group of 200+ 6th graders from Pike Township Lincoln Middle School. They visited Peace Learning Center and visited our friends next door at the Earth Discovery Center - our nature center. Rotating in groups between our two buildings and a nature walk, students learned leadership and communication skills while experiencing the power of nature and ecology.
Indy Do Day was a great experience thanks to Angie's List employees and other volunteers who learned a few conflict resolution activities to do with youth and then had the opportunity to engage 2nd graders from Center for Inquiry IPS 70. Thank you Indianapolis Downtown Rotary for making Indy Do Day happen.
Our Community Programs partnership with IVY Tech hosted hundreds of faculty and students for diversity and inclusion learning and experiential education.
Keep building peace for a better world. It starts with you!
