Peace By Peace

Peace by PEACE delivers an eleven week conflict resolution curriculum to Grade 5 students across Toronto. Through interactive activities, along with group discussions, four to five members volunteer their time in one particular classroom with daily problems to give them essential skills to create a more peaceful world.

“The most amazing and rewarding thing happens during those 12 weeks…while you’re teaching you experience their growth and change in attitude…It's an indescribable feeling, to see that change and knowing that you, in some way, made a difference in a child's life makes everything worth it.”
- Testimonial by P.J. Sayo (Public Relation/Festival Co-director 04-06 and volunteer since 03)

Philosophies

Recognizing Conflict
Volunteers identify conflict and illustrate how conflicts can become progressively more serious. The curriculum teaches a variety of non-violent techniques that enable students to prevent conflicts from becoming violent matters. Example: “conflict escalator” which demonstrates that conflict continues to ascend unless they are able to stop it.

Communication
Students are able to practice the art of communication through various activities. Communication is a key elements when de-escalating conflicts and withstanding tough times. Example: “I statement” which students use to express their feelings to overcome difficult situations.

Respecting Cultural Difference
Volunteers engage a series of activities with students where they can learn to respect similarities and differences among each other. This enables students to realize that each individual is unique while still part of a group. Example: group interactions about name meanings, culture and stereotyping.

Win-Win Solutions
Peace Games offer win-win outcomes because all participants are winners. These games offer students the ability to play games which do not single anyone out and where there is no loss. Popular games include: “Swamp Boards”, “Shake your Buns” and “Pass the Pulse”.
