The Education, Research and Training (ERT) Section of ACR advances K-12 conflict resolution education. On Friday, October 5, 2018 ERT will sponsor an event designed to raise awareness with high school youth about ways of resolving conflict.

Peace Circles Training will be conducted by the Center for Community Dialogue based in Tucson, AZ. The training will be designed for high-school age youth interested in learning how to resolve differences. Students will leave the training knowing how to factitiate a circle process. Peace Circles are an ancient and contemporary way to address conflict and tends to build community.

The ERT Section is now looking for teachers and schools willing to commit to bringing their students to the program. ACR can cover transportation costs and will provide lunch. Because of space limitations, this program will be limited to about 40 students from Pittsburgh area schools.

If you are interested, please contact David J. Smith at davidjsmith@davidjsmithconsulting.com before June 15, 2018. For more information about the ERT Section go to this site: http://acreducation.weebly.com
