PeaceBuilders straightforward, yet effective science-based program is designed to integrate into your daily routine by identifying specific risk factors and managing them with simple techniques.
Created for the young child, child, pre-teen and teen, PeaceBuilders addresses risk factors, which predict violence, bullying and drug and tobacco use. Participation in PeaceBuilders reduces aggression, promotes language development, teaches pro-social skills, increases parenting skills, creates inclusion for special needs children and fosters safer communities.
