With the Children's Peace Center I got to do what I live most, work with children. I found out about out through this mentoring program I was working with in high school. Ms. Melham came to talk with our students. I really enjoyed the presentation so I hopped on board. A traveling children's museum, what an awsome idea. The program teaches peacemaking skills and helps develop good character traits through Character Education, bully and violence prevention. Their is a traveling Outreach program that goes to public and private schools, homeschools, Day camps, churches, camps, etc. or through Field Trips. Included are fun, hands-on interactive exhibits, activity sheets, arts and crafts, discovery workshops, puppets, and storytelling activities that help children learn alternatives to violence, respect for each other and themselves, and how to enrich their own community and see the beauty of different cultures around them. I have learned so much while working with the programs and I spread the knowledge that I have gained every day.

I have volunteered to assist on several occasions when the Children's Peace Center was available to the community and I am always amazed at how the activities provided help children in so many ways. It helps with their self-esteem, with knowledge about our environment and how to take care of it, conflict resolution and becoming a peacemaker in their families and communities. It is a wonderful organization and should be duplicated all over the world!

I volunteered and donated to the Children's Peace Center many times. It provides a very unique hands-on interactive fun time for children of all ages (6-80+) to learn about ways to make a difference in the world. It was my experience that everyone leaving the center, volunteers and children alike were amazed at what they learned about ways to resolve conflicts, manage their own emotions and take responsibility for their own actions. One of the best parts of the Children's Peace Center is that you don't have to go to it....it comes to you, providing the capability to be used in many different environments, such as camps, schools, festivals, and churches. If you are looking for a way to teach children about bullying and how to deal with it, the Children's Peace Center could be your answer.

My belief is that God has plans for some to fulfill while on earth to bring peace and happiness to children and families. The Peace Center was begun with a dream to reach out and teach children -who would share the peace and love taught to them, to others-family, friends, school buddies; to intercede in conflicts-to teach by example the lessons learned in this wonderful tool, the Peace "Mobile" Center. Many children have no roll models because of the broken homes, some with drug addiction, physical abuse, illness....single parents who are not more than children themselves-they learn what they live with and think that cruelty, greed, speed and theft are normal. My hope for the Peace Center who bless children and families, that there will be many volunteers to GROW this program all over the US, and into other countries. Peace...If our children learn peace and peaceful means of interaction, they will grow to be peace loving adults who will lead this country with humility, peace and strength of character. A program such as this MUST be supported to survive -by helping hands and funds to enlarge and improve the program with new equipment and teaching tools. Respectfully, Kay Miller of

The Children's Peace Center offers lots of fun activities to help children learn conflict resolution and develop strong and thoughtful relationships. Children learn teamwork and the importance of respect, discipline, and kindness in creating a cooperative world. Their programs are fun, informative, and thought provoking. I'm proud to be part of this organization.

This wonderfulall-volunteer organization makes itself available to various groups, including schools and camps, to teach children concepts to help them resolve conflicts; learn compassion, respect, and techniques to work together to solve problems. A traveling museum, the Children's PEACE Center is an excellent teaching tool. Individual classrooms and entire schools can benefit from a visit to the Peace Mobile.

I have worked with the Peace Center for two years as a volunteer. This organization has an extremely dedicated group of people. Their Peacemobile is a wonderful way to provide students with hands-on experience in peace-building and the staff of volunteers is knowledgeable and well-trained. They love to bring the Peacemobile to schools and towns where they can offer a variety of materials to teach young people how to peacefully resolve conflict, how to respect each other, how to embrace differences, and how to empower themselves through self-esteem. Their programs are fun, interactive, inspiring, and successful!

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

I can't think of anything they could do to improve my experience.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I've definitely made new friends and I've been able to make use of my computer skills.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

It makes me happy and inspires me to do more to make a difference in education.

the Children's Peace Center has enriched lives of inner city youth for decades. More importantly is the way parents, or significant others are brought into learning experiences with children. Communication is always a challenge but becomes easier with some of the skills learned in the
Peace Center. The interaction based activities helps one learn by doing rather than just hearing.

I am so glad that I actually had first- hand experience working with such wonderful people of this organization. OMG! You all have prospered in such a beautiful way.

I remember when the day God first guided me to this organization. I had no clue what to expect but something in my heart was
telling me that this is where he wanted me to go and volunteer my help. To this day I can never forget how so much joy and light surrounded the Children Peace Center. I learned how precious giving back really meant; especially to organizations that's making a difference in someone's life.

Great Non- Profit Organization, please help to support them.

Teaching peacemaking through the arts is a wonderful way for children and adults to experience the many different forms of Peace. Children have the chance to explore feelings, not only their own, but also other's feelings. They can practice communication skills with blocks, learn how to say PEACE in different languages, work with others on bridge building, acting out resolutions to everyday conflicts and many other activities which promote peace.

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.
