Peace Village: creating global peacebuilders
Our vision is the global community living as empowered peace builders.
Peace Village is a non-profit organization based in Portland, Oregon. Our main goal is to establish educational programs that provide people with an understanding of peacemaking through an awareness of the relationship between themselves, their cultures, and their environment.
Through an integrated network of summer camps, leadership development, after school programs and family workshop opportunities, Peace Village provides a host of educational modalities from experiential and service learning programs to practical conflict resolution and mediation skills.
We focus on teaching our students to build inner strength as they learn to transform conflict and become mindful peacebuilders. Acknowledging that we all encounter the difficulties of frustration and conflict, Peace Village integrates its core curriculum with music and the arts to inspire and empower our students to make significant changes in the world. Since its inception, thousands of people have participated in our programs throughout the nation. Peace Village creates a place to come together, to learn and to practice peaceful ways of being. By investing in people of all ages and cultures who are contributing their knowledge and talents, each program truly becomes a village.
