Sullivan Middle School and the Center for Nonviolent Solutions Announce
the Launch of Conflict & Cooperation II and Healthy Power!

For the third year in a row, staff and volunteers at the Center, in collaboration with administration and teachers at Sullivan Middle School, are delivering our interactive, skill-based Conflict & Cooperation program to 120 students at the DaVinci Academy. The Center is also offering our Healthy Power program to a small, select group of male students with leadership potential. For more iniformation, read our joint Press Release.

If We Don’t Teach Peace, a 16-minute documentary video, talks about the education mission of the Center for Nonviolent Solutions. Board Member, Michael Langa says, “....I have learned early in life, if you don’t teach peace, somebody is teaching war. There are more advocates of violence than peace, so we need to get out there and teach peace."   Love Is...A Teen Dating Public Service Announcement was developed by teens in our VIP (Violence Intervention Project) at the Worcester Youth Center and was inspired by the personal experience of one of the participants.
