bcmPEACE Hooray For Youth Accomplishments
Agape-Satyagraha –This program uses peer mentoring to teach non-violent conflict resolution and social change leadership skills to over fifty community youth in grades 6-12.
Hip Hip Hooray for our @bcmPEACE youth involved in Agape-Satyagraha who have completed one of the 5 levels of conflict resolution. These levels are White, Green, Blue, Brown and Black. Thirty-seven times bcmPEACE recognized teens completing a level this year, this is just a few of them.
At the 2014 BE the PEACE banquet we are recognizing the four teens who have completed the Black level (so far this year) and who now serve as peer mentors.
Teens have learned how to choose a different path than violence and use their conflict resolution skills to be community leaders. After “graduating” by finishing the Black level, teens serve as peer mentors passing on what they’ve learned and experienced…keeping it real!
Teens have earned trips to Hershey Park and West Shore’s Hamden Pool.
