We have had the Peace Mobile her at least 3 times in the past few years. It is ALWAYS a great experience for children and volunteers alike. The use of art just enhances the experience of each child. It allows those who might have difficulty expressing their feelings another way of experiencing the concepts they are learning.

Artistic expression allows the children to show what they are feeling without fear. it provides a positive experience when it is needed most!

the Children Peace Education and Education Center is awesome. They presented a week's Peace Camp for the kids at our Summer Camp. We had over 25 kids. All were excited about what they experienced and learn. Each child has many hand on experiences through out the week. At the end of the week was a general experience review. Parents were invited. Each child got to demonstrate what they had leaned. This is a program that should be presented in all schools and churches.

The Peace Mobile served our school, King Springs Elementary, for 5 years and our teachers' comments showed that teachers found this one of the most worthwhile programs ever brought to our school. It was full of hands-on experiences which provided creative opportunites. The children made masks to show their feelings, designed flags for world peace, published their own Peace books, created wonderful imaginative objects out of recycled materials..and so much more….all for peacemaking through the arts.
The children were excited about the Peace Mobile each time it came, even though we had it several years in succession. We actually gave a pre and post test to kids one year to measure the effectiveness of the program and found that it raised awareness of their actions to a very large extent. The children became more aware of their words and actions, of new and better ways to handle their emotions, and became aware of the extent to which their actions (either peaceful or not peaceful) affect their world.
We have hoped for a permanent housing of the Peace Center since our school was no longer able to set up the exhibits in our media center with our growth and new media projects which took precedence. We have been waiting to hear that the Peace Center could welcome us to "their house" since we were physically no longer able to welcome them to ours. We love you, Peace Center!

raising awareness of children regarding how their actions and words bring either peace or violence into their world; how they have the power to make choices which are peaceful; showing children they have the power to take charge of how to express emotions and to address grievances with others in peaceful terms. This is a long-term and on-going initiative. To effect change, that is necessary.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them a permanent home so that we could visit there each year. Give them a strong volunteer base so that they can remain true to making it very personal for each child (no more than 4 children to one adult).

As a former school counselor I taught peacemaking skills. This organization's activities have great worth for the communities which have experienced any of the varied programs. Art is a wonderful means of self expression. Often a child/person can freely share emotions through art that may be difficult to impossible to express any other way.
I personally give thank for the work done by the Childrens Peace Center and look forward to many more people being blessed through it.

Children in two of Cobb County Georgia’ high risk communities were able to learn peaceful practices during summer camp. The Children's Peace Mobile learning center and staff used the arts to provided peacemaking practices for children 5-16. The children were able to utilize the “Arts for Peace” program to create mask, learned about their feelings and discussed various conflict resolution techniques. The summer camper, staff and parents commented on how wonderful and enriching the art program was for their participants.

Also, during our annual Back to School Community Resource Fair, the Children’s Peace Center grabbed the attention of more than 2000 youth and their parents. The Peace Mobiles’ art and learning program provided an informative and entertaining puppet show to demonstrate bullying prevention.

The CPC has been a positive influence for peace and peacemaking skills that consistently engage youngsters through arts and crafts programming that reinforces the skill sets learned through the CPC, Peace Mobile, Peacemaking 101. This approach makes more relevant the lessons taught and achieves better retention of the curriculum through the hands on involvement in the various crafts designed to connect the children to the peacemaking process.

several children centered venues and seen first hand the positive response of children to this program and the use of peacemaking skills outside of the lessons... real life use of the material.

get more people involved so that this important work can be expanded more quickly.

PEACE has done amazing work with our youth. I lead a non-profit focused on engaging youth in service, and PEACE has gone beyond our expectations working with our students. They've coached our youth through the process of developing activities to teach others about cultural tolerance. They keep in close contact with our youth and are always willing to offer support and resources to help us! PEACE is a great organization that truly lives their mission of spreading tolerance.

The Children's Peace Mobile came to our church & community fall festival. My children still talk about the games they played to learn peace and conflict resolution. The Children's Peace Center knows children and their need for interaction. Each game was carefully planned to help them experience problem solving, cooperation and team work. I saw firsthand how children respond to their curriculum and well-planned activities. My children LOVED the game where they had to arrange tubes on a board so that a ball could fall through correctly. It takes many tries to find the right path and it also takes team cooperation/problem-solving skills.

At the BE $WISE camp, each child had to apply for a checking account and manage their money. Every purchase had to be recorded into their checkbook. I watched as each child understood for the first time that when the money ran out of their checkbook, it was gone. They learned credit cards give you more debt, not more $. They learned the importance of opening a saving account. Each child also made a bank that had 3 sections: Save, Spend and Share. Both of my kids still use their banks.

allow for more time for each child in the PEACE Mobile. My kids loved it, but wanted more time to keep learning.

My daughter loved this program so much she asked to enroll in it twice! Awesome program, kids are having so much fun they aren't even aware of the magnitude or value of the lessons being taught. I would highly recommend it to any parent or organization considering.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The results are evident in my child's understanding and comprehension of broad social impacting topics but more importantly how to deal with them on a specific personal level. The positive results of this course are shown in her personal, moral and educational expansion.
