My 10 year-old daughter visited the PEACE Center mobile museum and thought it was great. She enjoyed each stationed and was glad something could be available for fun.

Children's PEACE has always shared so much with the youth in our Mentoring and Afterschool Programs. They've helped our high school youth develop peace-related service projects over the past couple years. Now, this year we've been able to invite them to facilitate workshops on listening and conflict resolution with our K-5th grade students. Our youth loved the fun and interactive activities, and we appreciated the help with teaching them to be kinder, more peaceful leaders!

The Children's Peace Mobile has come to our congregation's Fall Festival for the past couple of years. The fun activities always draw the kids (and us adults) in! More than just fun, the kids really learn positive community/social skills. Love it!

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 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!

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.

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.

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.
