LITTLE FRIENDS FOR PEACE INC
January 5, 2011

Based in the D.C. metro area Little Friends for Peace is an amazingly effective and unique educational non-profit. The thousands of young people and their adult leaders across the country who have experienced LFFP's customized conflict resolution and peace education curriculum would certainly attest.

Programming options include Peace camps, after school Peace clubs and educator workshops. LFFP uses role playing with skits and plays, art classes, cooperative games and many other mediums to reach the youth and ingrain conflict resolution techniques into their habits. Much time is spent by LFFP staff with volunteers, interns and college students who learn and practice the peace building techniques with the students.

Today, the majority of the programming is hosted at Perry School community service center in Washington D.C. LFFP has become a refreshing presence in the high conflict Sursum Corda neighborhood. Peace clubs are hosted by many local schools and communities including Beacon House, the Fishing School, Mount Rainier and many other local communities.

The founders M.J. and Jerry Park have made their home that their own six children named "The Oasis" in Piscataway National Park in Maryland. The Park family enjoys welcoming their family and friends to their home to enjoy the natural and beautiful environment.
