Youth Peace Programs

Through the Peace Center's school and neighborhood based Youth Peace Teams we empower teenagers to be leaders for peace and positive change in their own schools and communities. We run Youth Peace Teams in Gilpin Court (the Jackson Ward Youth Peace Team); in the East End (in a collaboration with Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club), and at Albert Hill Middle School.In addition, we convene teenagers from across the region to learn and apply techniques of nonviolent conflict resolution to help reduce the level of youth violence in the Richmond area at large.

Population(s) Served

RPEC conflict-resolution trainings teach participants concrete skills for resolving disagreements nonviolently, focusing on five themes: communication, conflict problem solving, cooperation, affirmation, and emotion regulation. RPEC programs are appropriate for adults or youth. As part of this program, RPEC maintains a Youth Conflict Resolution Team, training teenagers to co-lead workshops with other young people. In addition, RPEC runs Healing and Rebuilding Our Communities, a program for healing trauma from violence.

Population(s) Served
Adults

RPEC unites community members to work for racial justice and community peace. As part of this program, RPEC co-coordinates Eyes Wide Open-Virginia, a display of combat boots designed to promote reflection about the cost of war.
