Mission Statement

Peace Games empowers students to create their own safe classrooms and communities by forming partnerships with elementary schools, families and young adult volunteers.

Description

Peace Games is a nonprofit [501(c)(3)] public benefit corporation dedicated to ending the escalating trend of violence by teaching children to become proactive peacemakers in their classrooms, schools and communities. Peace Games was founded at Harvard University 14 years ago on a simple belief. Violence is learned, and if violence can be learned so can the skills of peacemaking. Since then, Peace Games has developed and tested a comprehensive school change model that teaches young people to be problem-solvers and peacemakers while creating a supportive and empowering school culture around them.

Peace Games' Major Goals are to:

  • Empower children with the skills, knowledge, relationships, and opportunities to be peacemakers.
  • Engage all community members to support children as peacemakers.
  • Inspire and support a new generation of educators and activists.
  • Change how society thinks about violence and young people.
