Mission Statement


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

Description

Peace First (www.peacefirst.org) was founded on the notion that young people have the power and responsibility to change the world. It is an innovative violence prevention program that teaches elementary school students to be peacemakers. The unique Peace Games approach engages whole school communities- families, teachers, teen and college volunteers - to teach lessons of cooperation, communication and conflict resolution using games and community service projects. It is the goals of Peace Games to empower children so they may create their own safe classrooms and communities. From its founding as a student run program at Harvard University Peace Games has grown to be a national non-profit and is entering an excited period of expansion.
