KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!
Our educational plan is based on prevention. We focus on preventing violence from occurring, and on educating the community to change attitudes and behaviours that have allowed violence to continue.
Our educational programs:
TRAIN THE TRAINERS
Designed to provide teachers, sports coaches and university students with the skills and knowledge necessary to pass NVP educational programs on to young people, and to have the competence and understanding to train other teachers.
SCHOOLS FOR PEACE | AGE 10-18
Promoting the values of self-esteem, non-violence and conflict management. The program helps young people to understand themselves, their friends, and the adults in their lives, and to come up with solutions to problems that are more likely to work for everyone.
SPORTS FOR PEACE | AGE 10-18
Educating and motivating coaches and volunteer leaders within any sports discipline to integrate life skills education into their sport training. The life skills segment includes
inspiring exercises focusing on self-esteem and how to solve conflicts peacefully.
UNIVERSITIES FOR PEACE | AGE 18-25
Designed to establish a strong relationship between universities and their local communities, with a view to ensuring sustainable and long-lasting implementation of NVP’s educational programs. This is accomplished by creating a network of university students who are trained to implement NVP curriculum through local schools, sports and different cultural platforms.
ENTREPRENEURSHIP | AGE 17-25
Increasing global unemployment mainly affects young people, and creates social exclusion, often leading to violence and crime. NVP has developed an entrepreneurship program designed to guide and support young people towards self-employment and to help them to take charge of their own lives.
E-LEARNING | ALL AGES
Building a digital, web-based education and resource platform with the objective
of reaching out to a global audience, young people, teachers and sport coaches, over a three-year period, offering them the opportunity to download education programs and develop their own non-violence initiatives.
