Hi, my name is Sheila, I'm from Denver, CO and I'm part of the Teaching Peace Initiative (TPI).
We leverage the power of peer-to-peer education to solve the problems of school bullying and school violence. Bullying is a problem that everyone can relate to - it's universal. And that's why we focus so much on it.
At TPI, we realize that intolerance is learned; and therefore, it can also be unlearned. By equipping our young peacemakers with the tools necessary to learn how to empathize and also understand their peers, we can better shape our school cultures for the future.
