The Creative Peace Project is a school violence prevention/social-emotional learning program in collaboration with USC JEP. Students learn about peace, non-violent conflict resolution methods and communication skills through meditation and mindfulness,  literature, artistic mediums, and hands-on activities. The Creative Peace Project is designed as a seven-week program that focuses on a new aspect of peace and social-emotional learning each week.
