Crafting for a Cause at the PLC! Volunteers from Roundpeg and ExactTarget Marketing will be joining us this Thursday, 10/2, for Indy Do Day to make beautiful upcycled paper flowers. #PEACEFLOWERS The flowers will be sold by our Peace Crew students at Crispus Attucks Medical Magnet High School to raise money for their service-learning trip to the Big Apple (NYC) during their spring break! The Peace Crew members volunteer with Peace Learning Center every Friday during the school year for a unique internship in which they lead peace education lessons to IPS elementary school students about things like the importance of staying in school, how to be an upstander, and being proud of who you are. These high school students are making a BIG difference in the lives of their elementary peers and now we want them to have a chance to learn about all of the BIG opportunities that are possible in their lives. This trip to NYC will give them a chance to explore one of the biggest cities in the world and learn about all of the jobs that exist in the nonprofit world.
Flowers for Peace Indy DO Day: Thursday, October 2, 2014, 10 am Peace Learning Center’s Peace Crew is a group of high school students who have spent the past year volunteering every Friday at local elementary schools teaching their elementary peers about peace, conflict resolution, and the importance of graduating. After serving locally for over a year it is their dream to spend a week doing service in the big apple! We are in need of help creating flowers from recycled material that the Peace Crew can then sell to use as fundraising for their trip!

Indy DO Day consists of several days when the people of Indianapolis get to know their neighbors, take ownership of their neighborhoods and take care of one another. It’s decentralized, ground-up, people-powered community improvement. It’s about pride, shared ownership, and stronger relationships. It’s about building the most civically-engaged community in the nation where every day is a Do Day.
