Nonviolence Education Institute

 A fellowship to enrich schools and transform lives           

 Dear Potential Fellow,

Thank you for choosing to participate in the Nonviolence Education Institute (NEI).  This fellowship program promises to be an experience that will stay with you for a long time. NEI is an opportunity to strategize with other educators and school personnel on how to create a more peaceful, respectful and positive learning environment for you and your students.  NEI will provide you with the time to reflect on yourself and your commitment to education and to improving yourself as a participant in a learning community, along with gaining knowledge and tools on how to implement nonviolence practices into your community, school, and classroom.

Below are details about the program.  Please feel to contact me with any questions or concerns.  We look forward to meeting and working with you in the months to come to create positive change and to strengthen Dr. King’s idea of the Beloved Community!

Choose Peace,

PJ Fox

Director of Training and Special Projects
