Peacemakers: Taking Action for Positive Change
Junior Instructor: Avalon the Peacemaker
What is a peacemaker? Have you ever wanted to help make a positive change in the world? This 8-week workshop will help you learn about peacemakers of all ages, both ones you may have heard of before, as well as those who live just around the corner. While learning about positive change, students will be guided in creating their own peacemaking projects using an adapted version of the Peace First curriculum to address injustice in the world, learning to become peacemakers themselves.
