Reading for Peace Program
Reading for Peace was initiated by dedicated volunteers who wanted to introduce The Conflict Center’s approach to solving problems and building more peaceful communities to younger children (preK-5). They felt the best way to do this was through stories and small group discussions about how the characters in the stories solved problems. The program was so successful it has become our longest running program and is implemented in schools across the metro-area every year. The enthusiasm of teachers and their students keeps Reading for Peace returning year after year. Children love not only stories but the opportunity to have the undivided attention of an adult that really cares about them.
