Conflict transformation training
Through MCC, thousands of people around the world get training in conflict transformation, including workshops and month-long advanced peacebuilding training. Participants learn how to resolve conflicts, prevent violence, provide trauma healing and address injustices. When they return home, they act for peace and train others in their communities.
Children and teenagers around the world learn to recognize conflict and use nonviolent ways to resolve it through peace clubs in their schools. Through stories and role plays they learn about respect, self-esteem, people who are different from them and creative ideas for responding to conflict and injustice.
Peace education focuses on how our faith leads us to build peace rather than join our nation’s pursuit of war and society’s reliance on violence. We provide resources and speakers to broaden people’s understanding of peace and encourage advocacy with government leaders.
