Community Peace Building Academy 

Peace Learning Center (PLC) is proud to announce the 2017, "Community Peace Building Academy." The Academy is specifically designed to train Service Coordinators and Social Workers in senior care facilities to facilitate peace building workshops for the communities they serve. This two-day workshop will be hosted at Peace Learning Center in Indianapolis on March 23 and 24. 

Course materials will be based on PLC original work and the Help Increase the Peace Program (HIPP) manual created by the American Friends Service Committee. Participants will learn to facilitate PLC learning modules based on:

  • conflict resolution
  • communication skills
  • community problem solving
  • understanding diversity
  • assumptions (gossip) and open-mindedness

Academy graduates will be certified HIPP and PLC workshop facilitators and able to facilitate workshops at their own facilities. Valued at $600 per participant, PLC will provide books, materials, and lunch for the two-day training through scholarships provided by the Central Indiana Senior Fund (CISF).
