About Peace First

Peace First partners with schools, educators and other nonprofit organizations that serve youth from Pre-K to 8th grade. Students learn to cooperate, communicate, and resolve conflicts in a developmentally appropriate way. During the second half of the program, students transform their learning into action through projects that teach civic engagement skills while demonstrating the positive impact young people can have in their communities.
