Mission Statement

The Mosaic Project, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, works towards a peaceful future by reaching children in their formative years.

We unite young children of diverse backgrounds, provide them with essential skills to thrive in an increasingly diverse society, and empower them to strive for peace.

We create a microcosm of the diverse, inclusive, just world we want to see and show our young students that peace is possible.

We seed the future population of middle schools, high schools, and all the venues of adult life with thousands of individuals who have seen a new possibility of what the world can be. Not only are our students inspired to work towards peace, they have been given concrete skills to do so and are empowered to take action.

Description

School segregation in the United States is currently at the same level as it was in 1969, the year after Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. Our children continue to grow up surrounded by stereotypes, often with little or no exposure to those different from themselves. This dangerous situation breeds fear, feeding prejudice and hatred, which in turn fuel violence and further segregation. The Mosaic Project works to break this cycle.

Research shows that we start to exhibit prejudice between 2½ and 8 years old. Unlike any other organization of which we are aware, The Mosaic Project profoundly reaches children in elementary school before prejudice can become entrenched. For ten years, we have been uniting students of diverse backgrounds in our unique human-relations outdoor school.

We create a microcosm of the diverse, inclusive, just world we want to see and show our young students that peace is possible.
