“Teacher! Teacher! He isn’t being nice!”
“Teacher! Teacher! She hit me!” 


For years it seems our students have had two options when dealing with conflict: tell the teacher or don’t. Both children and adults often struggle to make sense of competing messages to always tell an adult and to not “tattle."

Children can handle many of the conflicts that arise in and out of school when they have effective, respectful strategies in their “tool box”. Relationships, communication, and the ability to collaborate with others, even when we disagree, are essential skills in any arena. 

Join Interactions for Peace Specialists Ivan Alva and Beverly Prange to learn how the Peace Patrol program is providing conflict-resolution strategies for children around the world. Peace Patrol is a structured approach for 2nd-8th grade students that develops essential social-emotional skills, 

Participants will:

  • Learn strategies for building self-awareness, confidence, communication, cooperation, and conflict-resolution skills

  • See students resolving real-life conflicts on the playground

  • Experience how student peer-mediation builds a peaceful school culture

  • Take away lessons you can implement tomorrow

Transforming Systems for High Risk Youth and Communities

February 2021  |  7:30 Eastern  |  4:30 Pacific

Public education struggles to provide a high quality and equitable education to all students. The result of this struggle is the alternative school system. Far too often data is the enemy of this system because it is not contextualized and doesn’t tell the whole story. These schools, full of students who were pushed out by the traditional system, are the places where equity can exist and where relationships thrive. This work is powerful, inspirational, isolating, and hard. Systems and practitioners working with high-risk youth know that this work, when done with a good heart and strategic action, can support students and families in transforming and even saving their lives. 

In our work, we’ve collected incredible stories of success and celebration, of students who re-engaged and re-connected with learning and who began to recognize themselves as scholars. We will explore the structures and practices emerging from alternative learning settings that have the capacity to inform all who work with youth. 

Participants will:
●        We will explore structures designed to examine data without judgment.  
●        Learn about best practices for re-engaging students, families, staff, and community.
●        Have time for reflection and the creation of next-step “I can set this in motion tomorrow”  action planning.
●        Form relationships with a network of others engaged in this heart work.
