Making Peace Workshops

Making Peace workshops combine training for youth in community and conflict resolution, with a parallel session for their parents. Over four hours, youth gain awareness of their communication and leadership style while their parents learn the same skills for two hours before meeting face-to-face with their son or daughter to practice.

Referrals to this program generally come from Youth Aid Panels and Magisterial District Judges, but are also encouraged from any family that feels their relationships could be improved through a structured interactive program of conflict resolution skills.

What’s your conflict style? How can you access all your options “do conflict” constructively? This program for youth is a 4 hour intensive interactive training course focused on dealing with conflict management and communication skills.

Here is a “peace poem” from one recent group of youth, ages 11-16 years:

Peace is a soft, yellow puppy,
      or purple, pink and green tie die.

Peace is clear.

Peace is an eagle or an octopus.

Peace is cheaper.

Peace is the 60s – “All you need is love.”

It is sitting, swimming, walking, breathing.

Peace sounds like the Beatles and the waves in the ocean,
      like wind chimes, chirping birds, and hissing turtles.

Peace smells like candles, perfume, strawberries,
      gingerbread and Cinnabon.

Peace tastes good – like freedom,
      all natural and magically delicious.

Peace is sunny beaches, clear skies,
      and rainbows after a thunderstorm.
