Jul26
All of us at Peace Learning Center are saddened by the many senseless deaths of young people in our community. We know there are not any easy answers or solutions to stop the violence. Yet, we also know that it is our responsibility to educate young people to ensure they have the skills and support they need to become future peacemakers in our community.This issue of Peace Learning News will highlight what we are doing to prevent violence and how you can help us do it better.

Peace on,
Peace Learning Center

Peace Learning Center would like to recognize Ashley  Schwartzkopf, Tiffany Tibbot, and Lymari Quintana  as the volunteers of the month!! These wonderful ladies joined us as summer interns/volunteers and have been a tremendous addition to our program staff!

Clare Wildhack-Nolan and Mame Keita, youth development facilitators, worked closely with them and said, “This summer had been amazing and fun with our new interns. Ashley, Tiffany and Lymari 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. After just a few weeks, they were able to facilitate groups by themselves for an entire week. We appreciate that they lived the PLC values as well as their willingness to do the grunt work of ordering pizza, putting away chairs and cleaning bathrooms. They showed great commitment to peace and youth. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts.” Thank you ladies for everything you have done for our organization.  We are very lucky to have you on our team!

Peace Learning Center could not accomplish everything that we do without the help of our amazing volunteers.  It takes a lot of hands and hearts to educate, inspire and empower people to live peacefully.  Sister Cathy Campbell was honored as our January 2013 Volunteer of the Month:

Sr. Cathy has been extremely involved in our Focus2020 initiative and has been seen facilitating at Listening Tours, helping at the Chautauqua and workshops, and tabling for events.

Community Programs Director, John McShane, has had the pleasure of working very closely with Sr. Cathy and says, “That every time he sees her he is reminded that none of us are ever alone because she has a way of just being there, for everyone.”

Thank you Sr. Cathy for everything you have done for our organization.  We are very lucky to have you on our team!
