Peace First

Peace First
$20,000
Education and Youth

Peace First began as a response to Boston’s skyrocketing youth homicide rates in the early 1990’s as a way to view children as problem-solvers, rather than witnesses or victims of their environment. Peace First teaches children how to act peacefully, enables teachers to teach peacemaking skills, and encourages all to see and celebrate the important role peaceful youth play in our society. This grant is for general operating support.
