A training program entitled, Education Issues for Pro Bono Lawyers" Project PEACE for Educators and Lawyers will be held on November 26, 2012 from 10:00 am - 2:45 pm at the Heinz 57 Center, 339 6th Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15222.

Project Peace works to reduce conflicts and violence in Pennsylvania elementary schools by teaching children how to discuss and mediate their disagreements peacefully. The objective of Project PEACE is to neutralize minor conflicts before they escalate to explosive confrontations that could potentially lead to violent acts. Children become active participants in promoting positive behavior in their classrooms by taking on the role of mediator and using the mediation process.

The Project PEACE training introduces participants to the peer mediation process and provides them with instruction to teach their students. Over the past six years, Project PEACE has brought peer mediation programming and conflict resolution education to more than 80 schools directly and another 120 indirectly.
