CHILDRENS PEACE EDUCATION AND COMMUNITY ENRICHMENT CENTER
January 31, 2011

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.
