Samantha Carlson – Spreading Peace In Communities Everywhere
SPICE, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization committed to empowering women and youth to be confident and comfortable in their communities by encouraging healthy lifestyles, gender equality, and human rights.
Previous projects have included workshops with at-risk youth living in emergency shelters where they learn successful techniques for stress management and self regulation. Future projects will include these, as well as community outreach projects in schools and with other at-risk individuals to improve how society approaches symptoms of trauma and to Spread Peace In Communities Everywhere!
These projects are possible through the combined efforts of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, Samantha Carlson, Tara Matthews, Julian Hricik, and Patty Meier, all of whom contributed to similar work in Uganda during their Peace Corps service.
