Believing All is Possible (BAPS) youth leaders from Logan County will lead a Help Increase the Peace workshop with elementary and middle school students in McDowell County, as part of the Sky's the Limit summer program.
Thank you to everyone that expressed interest in attending the Help Increase the Peace workshop here in Baltimore. Workshop is free (though donations are graciously accepted) and food will be provided. Training will take place at the AFSC Baltimore Office: 4806 York Rd.
The Help Increase the Peace (HIP) program was developed by the American Friends Service Committee staff in Syracuse, New York, in 1991 as a youth-oriented program to address the epidemic of violence in schools. HIP is based on the conviction that nonviolence and participation in our communities can better each of us and our world.
Workshops focus on three themes: options to violence; dealing with racism, prejudices, and our differences; and the belief that we can each participate in our communities to bring about positive social change.
AFSC is a Quaker organization devoted to service, development, and peace programs throughout the world. Our work is based on the belief in the worth of every person, and faith in the power of love to overcome violence and injustice. Learn more
