SWOVA is excited to join the GivingTuesday movement on December 3rd, an international day aimed at raising awareness and highlighting the importance of charitable giving.
This is SWOVA’s first year participating. We invite you to support SWOVA on this special day and ask you to…
... children and youth who can speak up and stand out without fear
... empowered youth who can make change for a brighter, safer tomorrow
... safe spaces to engage with each other with openness and humility
... inclusive and violence-free communities where we are all welcome to be ourselves.
We believe in the powerful possibilities of our programs. We have heard that:
“The program promotes the development of respectful leaders and encourages children to explore their strengths on their own and collectively ... We often bring the learning from each Peace Kids lesson into other conversations and expectations during the school day.” —Gail Bryn-Jones, Elementary School Teacher
“The students, both buddies and mentors, finish the program with a confident sense of well-being, tools for real-world problem-solving and the ability to care about other individuals and their community.” —Shari Hambrook, High School Teacher
Please consider supporting SWOVA with a contribution that will support a student, a classroom, or our ongoing work.
Together we can support our children and youth to feel good about themselves and what they can contribute to their families, schools, and community.
