The Public Defender’s Office is our Volunteer Group of the Month. Public Defender members spent a full Friday working with youth from a local elementary school. After being trained in peace education lessons the volunteers mentored students as they went through rotations. The volunteers were welcoming and friendly. It was clear that they cared about the youth and were happy to be spending their time with them. Many of the volunteers said they couldn’t wait to come back!

Our “Peace Mentors” are our Volunteers of the Month. Peace Mentors are committed to helping Peace Learning Center by receiving training to become facilitators for PLC field trips. Jay Horan, our Director of Engagement has worked closely with the group and said, “What a beautiful group of people! They are kind and caring. They believe in our mission and want nothing more than to have an impact on children. We are so lucky to have them.”

Peace Learning Center would like to recognize Austin Elliot, Breea Vest, and Leah Trimpe as the volunteers of the month! These wonderful students joined us as summer interns and have been a tremendous addition to our program.
Our Youth Development Facilitators worked closely with them and said, “This summer has been amazing with our new interns. They jumped in with enthusiasm. They shared their unique personalities and styles with the PLC staff and all the summer groups. They were always positive, willing to help and we could always depend on them to step up. They showed great commitment to peace and youth. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.”

When I think of peace, I think of everyone in a community working together. One person can make a change, but together as a team, we can make a world of a change.
I chose to work with the Peace Learning Center because of all the great things I heard about them. The Peace Learning Center is definitely one of the kind. During one of my first few events here, I realized the large impact I could have on a single child’s life in such a short amount of time. When a child feels comfortable in a setting like the Peace Learning Center, it’s incredible how much they can open up to the group. On my first day at the Peace learning Center I was playing a game with a group who had just arrived, and something just clicked between a little girl and I. She was super shy at first, but between our fun interactions and my peace training, she felt I was someone she could trust and she was by my side the whole day. At the end of the day she gave me the warmest, sweetest hug before she left.
The one-on-one experience I had with this one child reminded how much of a change a single person can make. When I think of the great impact I had on this girl, I think of the even bigger impact our group has on all of the groups coming through our camps throughout the summer. It reminds me of how so much is possible, how so much peace is achievable, and how big of an impact we can all make by just trying.
