Group Activities on the School & Youth Pledge of Nonviolence
For the Season for Nonviolence & Year-Round Implementation
Dear Educator for Nonviolence:
In response to many requests for easy-implementation tools for nonviolence education, the Gandhi King Season for Nonviolence headquarters office is grateful to the Institute for Peace and Justice and its Families Against Violence Advocacy Network for providing this adaptable curriculum. The curriculum is designed to be used in conjunction with the School Pledge of Nonviolence and the Youth Pledge of Nonviolence.
Introduction. The following activities, one or two for each of the seven components of the Pledge of Nonviolence, were chosen for several reasons.
Sources. These activities are just a few of the hundreds of activities developed in the Alternatives to Violence Kits for Public Schools, K-5, Public Schools, Grades 6-12, Christian Education and Schools, K-8, and Christian High Schools & Youth Groups, and the LESSON PLAN RESOURCE BOOK for the "Teens Acting for Peace" (TAP) Program.
