Peace Games was founded in 1992 on the belief that young people have the power and responsibility to change the world. It is a civic engagement/violence prevention program that prepares young children (K-8th grade) to be peacemakers in their local schools and communities. The heart of this program is a weekly service-learning curriculum integrated into the academic frameworks of the school, taught by college volunteers in partnership with the classroom teacher. This curriculum is joined by focused coaching for the principal and a cohort of teachers to strengthen the school’s culture and climate. Peace Games has operations in Boston, New York, and Los Angeles as well as affiliate programs in sites ranging from Chicago to Colombia.
