"If there is to be peace in the world. There must be peace in the nations.
If there is to be peace in the nations, There must be peace in the cities.
If there is to be peace in the cities, There must be peace between neighbors.
If there is to be peace between neighbors, There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home, There must be peace in the heart."
- Lao Tzu (570-490 B.C.)
Our WeDoPeace Travel Club arranges for members to travel to places to meet up with peacemakers where the quest for peace with justice has succeeded or is still a work in progress .
Members familiar with the culture act as social hosts on our tours which are lead by guides from the leading travel companies; (i.e., Oya Tiglioglu Zacker who leads our tours in Turkey )

FIVE STEPS TO PEACE
Step 1 - Pre-Schoolers to 2nd Grade
The Cool School Game
Cool School: Where Peace Rules is an interactive computer game designed to teach children about conflict resolution in a lively, fun, entertaining, and developmentally appropriate context. It was developed by interactive gaming veteran F.J. Lennon, whose credits in the industry include projects for the Walt Disney Company, Sesame Street, and Mattel. This game provides children with a positive alternative to the violent images that pervade the video game world. In contrast, this game teaches social skills, and allows children to learn about foundational social skills in a constructive, socially-positive, school environment
Step 2- Primary School Grades K-8
Cool Schools Peer Mediation Progarm
Step 3 -Secondary School Grades 9 – 12
Leadership Through Peer Mediation (LtPM)
The Peace Foundation's Cool Schools Peer Mediation Programs of Step 2 & 3 is a whole school program for Primary and Secondary Schools that teaches essential life skills for peaceful conflict resolution. It is suitable for all members of the school community; students, teachers and parents. The skills taught empower individuals to build positive, caring relationships with others especially when conflict arises over differences.
Step 4- Typical or Troubled School Mental Health
One of the American Psychiatric Foundation's most widely implemented programs, the Typical or Troubled? School Mental Health Education Program educates high school teachers, coaches, bus drivers, and other school personnel about the warning signs o mental health problems. Adults close to teens – especially parents, teachers, coaches and other school personnel – should learn how to recognize the warning signs of mental health problems, and know how to refer the teen to a mental health professional.
Step 5 – Adult Conflict Resolution Course for Ages 18+
The Conflict Network’s Online Course
CRN's E-Learning Certificate Course is an in-depth course in Conflict Resolution skills. Study is undertaken online under the guidance of a trained teacher. The course will usually take 30-40 hours of study to complete. On successful completion students will receive a Certificate of Achievement from the Conflict Resolution Network.
