Hi there. I’m Karen Szillat, an early childhood educator who is passionate about empowering children by teaching them to be capable problem-solvers, effective communicators, and advocates for themselves, others, and our world. The result… a more peaceful world for all! I partner with parents and teachers to help young children grow wings! By working together, we all grow more empowered.
The 5 Building Blocks to a Peaceful World: A Peacemaking and Problem Solving Program for Young Children
I am currently in the process of creating an nonviolence curriculum in partnership with Azim Khamisa, Founder of the Tariq Khamisa Foundation and President and CEO of the Children’s Safety Network. The 5 Building Blocks adapts TKF’s 6 Key Messages to meet the needs of our youngest learners. It is a peace generating and violence prevention program that is solution-oriented. The pilot program will begin Fall 2014. If you are interested in learning more about this program, becoming a location for our pilot program, helping with our research efforts, or supporting us in any way, please contact us here.
