This summer we had an amazing opportunity to run the I Choose Peace Academy camp with 20 youth, ages 11-13. Each day was filled with team building activities, skills for conflict resolution, mindfulness techniques, bully education and tools for prevention. The youth walked into the training not knowing each other and left with lifetime friendships they had built.

Quotes from training:
I never knew that I had the power to make a difference in this world.”
I wish more kids could have this program so that we can make everyone feel like they belong
My child is now more peaceful and loving with her siblings at home and our whole household is more calm”
“My child told me to be mindful and take a deep breath while stuck in traffic one day. It changed my whole mood for the better.”
