Youth build community to combat the chaos

The summer of 2010, the Youth Empowerment through Conflict Resolution Program expanded its conflict resolution and mediation training to middle school students at the Higher Achievement Program’s 6 week summer learning program.  Mediation helped resolve conflicts not only between scholars, but between scholars and staff.  In 7/8 of the mediations, the situation was resolved.  None of the disputants needed further mediation.

Bridging the divide across borders: Peace Dialogue in Elwak

Scarcity of grazing land has led to conflicts among pastoralist communities living along both sides of the Kenya and Somalia border. In Elwak, Somalia livestock is the main source of livelihood for the residents and the same is true for neighboring communities living on the other side of the border in Kenya.  Unfortunately with limited space, violent conflict led to preventable deaths.

Help Increase the Peace (HIP)

The Help Increase the Peace (HIP) program was developed by the American Friends Service Committee staff in Syracuse, New York, in 1991 as a youth-oriented program to address the epidemic of violence in schools. HIP is based on the conviction that nonviolence and participation in our communities can better each of us and our world.

Workshops focus on three themes: options to violence; dealing with racism, prejudices, and our differences; and the belief that we can each participate in our communities to bring about positive social change.
