Peacemakers Sponsorship

It is recognized that Peacemakers is an inspirational educational event for youth-driven conflict resolution programs in Oregon and Southwest Washington. It is also recognized that beyond an educational event, Peacemakers empowers youth and is the catalyst for creating safer and more peaceful schools and communities.

Why Sponsor Peacemakers? 

Implemented 14 years ago at the request of student peer mediators to provide a unique educational  Peacemakers provides an opportunity for them to interact with their peers, share creative ideas, learn new conflict resolution skills and hear from community members who work with and support youth.   

Participants: 

Annually, over 500 middle and high school students attend Peacemakers and since 1995 over 7000 students have attended the conference. In addition, over 800 teachers, professionals and community members have donated their time to teach youth about conflict resolution, mediation and peacemaking.  By extension, over 10,000 additional students have been impacted by attendees' subsequent activities.

The impact:

Peacemakers has three goals including:

  1. Strengthening existing youth-focused conflict resolution programs.  Many of the participants are active in school-based peer mediation and other conflict resolution programs.  Peacemakers offers skill-building workshops that improve school and community based youth-focused peer mediation and conflict resolution programs.
  2. Launching new youth-focused conflict resolution programs.  Each year, new schools send teams of youth who learn more about and become inspired by school-based peer mediation and other conflict resolution programs. 
  3. Changing students' lives by helping them to understand and value conflict resolution.  Typical comments we receive from students include statments like: "This workshop made me think more about what I could do in the world," "I learned that we are the keys to the future, to stop violence," "I didn't realize words were so powerful."
