PCA’s Vision

Peacemaker Corps Association believes that each and every youth can be a peacemaker in their community, harnessing modern technology to make the world a compassionate, safe and tolerant place in which to live.

The Peacemaker Corps recognizes that youth are not isolated within the community and therefore seeks to direct its education programs not only at teens but also at the adults within the community by employing them as facilitators for the Peacemaker workshops.

    Programs

    The Peacemaker Corps uses education to empower our youth to become actively involved in peacemaking activities in the community. At its core, the curriculum is designed to teach conflict resolution, ethics and accountability. These lessons provide a springboard for the youth into peacemaking activities such as mediation, community organizing and peer mentoring. As illustrated by the SPARTA Consulting survey, the results of the initial training launch were a resounding success. The core training, now delivered by app and video, and the festival, which introduces STEM education, is fun and creative.

Peacemaker Corps Workshops


Workshops take place over two days in a shopping mall or safe specific space in refugee camps. This neutral ground, considered by conflict resolution professionals as a “safe space” where teenagers can leave their cliques, gang affiliations and community biases at the door. Creating these zones helps them create an environment that is conducive to learning and sharing. Invited students register and receive their Peacemaker Kit; which consists of their laminated identity card, Table tent card, and the professionally bound training manual. They are then seated in a half circle and are encouraged to actively participate in discussions. This hands-on, active learning approach generates thought-provoking conversation that has a lasting effect on the students’ mindsets and behaviors.


The first day consists of town-hall interactive discussions about diversity, terrorism, conflict, and youth violence. Students then participate in awareness activities to identify their own reactions to conflict. The second day consists of interactive exercises focusing on mentoring and ethics and concludes with a workshop on community organizing.
Following the intense workshop, a graduation ceremony honoring the Peacemakers is held in center court of the mall. This ceremony serves two purposes. The first is formal recognition of the students’ achievements and second is to provide a forum for the graduates to meet local governmental officials and organizations that support their efforts to better their community. Graduates are awarded a Peacemaker Corps graduation certificate, a beautiful multi-colored custom designed medal, and a T-shirt identifying them as members of the Peacemaker Corps.

Past graduation ceremonies and Festival award ceremonies have received extensive media, radios, TV, Cable and a very robust Social Media presence. we have over 2.5 million followers on Twitter with all of our supporters, The first two year our global TV, cable and Dish TV brought us to 350 million households, expanding our film makers potential TO A WORLD-WIDE AUDIENCE.
