Reviews for Childrens Peace Education and Community Enrichment Center

Rating: 5 stars  

We are very familiar with the Childrens Peace Education and Community Enrichment Center and the work its does to enhance peace on an individual level. They sponsored a workshop in our area that was well received by the children from a low income area. The song "Let There Be Peace on Earth and Let It Begin With Me" describes so well the Childrens' PEACE Center. I know its model is being used in many area.

Only indirectly.

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

I have donated computer parts, time and expertise for several years to the Children's Peace Center programs. I have seen a positive impact on children's lives. Adults that almost accidentally became aware of the activities and tried that were also changed. I have seen old computers that I thought needed to just be recycled used as interactive activities that children wanted to use. The mix of high tech and high touch attracts all children including many who could be classified as "disadvantaged" as well as those with "many advantages". Involving and interacting with each child is done very well. Conflict resolution activities that anyone can understand and apply has changed those that I have personally observed. I know that any funds and support will be used wisely and well.

Schools, churches and community activities for many years.

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

Encourage the founders to not stretch beyond their current physical strength, resources, and support as much as they have in the past. This will hopefully allow these life changing programs to continue and grow for many years in the future

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.

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

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.

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

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