Peacemaker and Peace Path

Soul Shoppe Peace Path

Peace Paths are being painted on playgrounds everywhere!

When students have a conflict, trained student peacemakers help them to literally and physically walk the path to peace. Peace paths are “life-size” (4′ x 13′) and students slide step by step along this courageous journey in order to peacefully resolve their conflicts. Having the Peace Path as a permanent part of the playground allows students to use the path and the communication tools on their own, fostering leadership and responsibility.

Soul Shoppe Student Peacemaker

The Peacemaker Program is a Student Leadership program that trains a team of select 3rd, 4th and 5th grade Peacemakers to solve problems and provide ally-ship and communication support on the playground and in the classroom.

The program includes special training of a school site “Peacemaker Liaison”, training for yard-duty staff, training for school staff and a parent program.
