Our Mission: To foster and develop peacemakers through modeling, mentoring, storytelling and dialogue.
Peacemakers stand up and say there is an alternative to violence, and that violence is not acceptable.
We help children deconstruct stereotypes, learn about people different from them and resolve conflict in a healthy way. Peacemakers are positive role models who support and encourage children to build the skills necessary to grow up healthy and succeed academically, socially and personally. We teach, men and boys, women and girls, new ways of being and doing. Peacemakers resist the sense of powerlessness which violence brings to our community.
The Men As Peacemakers’ story enables a man to reflect his personal value for peace, share the challenges of living a nonviolent life, take responsibility for preventing violence and redefine what it is to be strong.
