Peace Learning Circles Peace Learning Circles(PLC) is a non-profit educational organization. Our mission is to promote a culture of peace through education to youth and communities.
Our goal is to provide students with fun and exciting opportunities to learn about values, teamwork, how to be a positive impact, empathy, respect for others, inclusion, and how to be a peace maker and peace mentor in their homes, schools and communities. Students also learn and practice safe ways to deal with small problems and larger conflicts without violence.
Consider this; since 2006, 28 schools in Racine & Kenosha have participated in Peace Learning Circles; 200 classes, 5500 students – making a difference to one child – priceless
Peace Mentor NominationsSince 2006, the students we work with have learned about well-known peace mentors such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Cesar Chavez and Mother Teresa. They have also learned about 2 local peace mentors; Corinne Owens from Racine and Pastor Olen Arrington from Kenosha. We would like to introduce the students to two more peace mentors, someone that is making a difference in our communities regardless of their age. If you know of someone that you believe has made a difference, even if in small ways, you can download the nomination form on the link below. The deadline to receive nominations is January 25, 2011.
