For more than 30 years, MJ & Jerry Park have been building a culture of peace by teaching children and the adults who shape their environments the skills needed to create peaceable communities. The couple are co-founders and co-directors of Little Friends for Peace, a Washington DC-based nonprofit providing a variety of peace education programs including summertime peace camps, in-school and after-school programs for K-8 students, family workshops, and conference presentations around the country, and increasingly, internationally.

Monsignor Frank Scollen will receive the Center's 2014 Way of Nonviolence Award

Monsignor Frank Scollen, Pastor of Saint Peter's Church in Worcester, is a humble man who has dedicated his life to ministering to the poor. For more than forty years he has been a tireless advocate for peace and justice in the Worcester community. In his tenure at St. Peter's , Monsignor Scollen has been active in many efforts to reach out to young people caught up in gangs and violence. His parish helped host public meetings to address issues of violence in the community. He has also been part of efforts to promote affordable housing, drug treatment for drug addicted individuals, and many other social justice efforts. The Center is pleased to present him with this year's Way of Nonviolence Award.

We hope you can join us on November 12th!

If We Don’t Teach Peace, a 16-minute documentary video, talks about the education mission of the Center for Nonviolent Solutions. Board Member, Michael Langa says, “....I have learned early in life, if you don’t teach peace, somebody is teaching war. There are more advocates of violence than peace, so we need to get out there and teach peace."   Love Is...A Teen Dating Public Service Announcement was developed by teens in our VIP (Violence Intervention Project) at the Worcester Youth Center and was inspired by the personal experience of one of the participants.
