Schools and Youth Programs

We began these programs five years ago when Pax Christi Little Rock (PCLR) worked with school counselor Mildred Calhoun to develop a peace curriculum for Rockefeller Elementary. The following year we worked with Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) and Little Rock School District to expand these non-violence lesson plans and resources. This curriculum teaches peacemaking skills for elementary age students. In 2021 we provided these lessons to students in Little Rock School District, Pulaski County Special School District, and many private schools Over 15,000 students participated.

This year we invite all Arkansas schools  and youth groups participate and present these lessons teaching peacemaking skills to the youth in our state.
