[Matt Burton, the AFSC Campus Peace Intern at Park University, has been busy recruiting and organizing activities through the Peace Education Club at Park University, Parkville, Missouri. He shared the following report.]
The club currently has active members with fields of study such as Early Childhood Education, English Literature, Biology, Chemistry, Geology, and Social Work to name a few. The club allows for each member to have open say to any of their ideas and to see them through.

By Banen Chaney, former intern with AFSC Kansas City
First, I will say that this AFSC internship has been a great experience and I feel that it has really helped me grow as a person. My desire of educating individuals on the potential for peace has dramatically increased, and I plan to continue my work, even without the title of “Peace Studies Intern.”
