Bullying affects students everywhere, and peer education can fix it.

Bullying is a public health epidemic that affects millions of kids around the world, but we keep responding with the same old, tired solutions. Peer-to-peer education can change attitudes and behaviors to make schools safe and accepting for all.

Tell us more about the injustice you feel strongly about

The Teaching Peace Initiative organizes Peace Teams of high school students, matches them with a Peace Coach mentor and our proven, award-winning peace curricula, and supports them to teach peace and make a real difference in their communities.

We need students to step up and start Peace Teams in their schools!
