CHECK OUT THE NEW BUCKSBLOGSPOT. HELP FOR BUCKS COUNTY BUSINESSES AND ECONOMIC RECOVERY – BUCKSBLOGSPOT

Spotlight: The Peace Center

This year The Peace Center (TPC) celebrates 40 years of educating and empowering schools and families, and enriching communities with proven conflict resolution and social justice programs. Education is the hallmark of TPC’s ongoing commitment to the community.  By continuing to adapt, adjust, and add to their many workshops, programs, and services, TPC remains a vital resource throughout Bucks County and beyond.

With the support of the Bucks County Board of Commissioners, TPC serves as the primary organization to assist county residents struggling with bullying. For 10 years, its Bullying Prevention Resource Center has offered programs at elementary, middle and high school levels.  Little Lessons for Big Hearts now provides bullying prevention tools for preschoolers, too.

Adults and children also turn to The Peace Center for coaching on standing up to bullying or preventing bullying behavior. Trained mediators help resolve conflicts in schools, neighborhoods, and businesses through restorative circles, mediations, mentoring, and workshops.

Additionally, the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office partners with TPC to build stronger relationships between police officers and communities through the L.O.V.E. Is The Answer movement – beginning with facilitated conversations around a provocative film.

TPC’s community programs continue to grow! Join a Democracy Circle via Zoom on the third Wednesday of each month, 6:30pm to 8:00pm, as TPC staff create a safe and courageous space for challenging, sometimes difficult and controversial conversations around topics of concern.

TPC also serves county residents through quarterly book discussions (One Book- One Bucks) and workshops which dive deep into understanding and disrupting systemic barriers to equity and inclusion in society. 

Learn about TPC’s impact in your community. Join a Bridges to Peace storytelling program, and spend an hour hearing personal stories of courage, bridge-building and strength.
