Peace Pathways consists of three events: an educational workshop on Saturday, December 3rd, 2022, a mid-term meeting after school on Tuesday, February 21, 2023 (teacher brainstorming), and a morning Reception on Saturday, April 29, 2023, with door prizes and certificates of completion. Every teacher who completes the program will receive a Family Membership to the International Peace Museum (free admission for one-year).

Teachers will receive three hours of foundational peace literacy training – Ideas of Peace, Movements and Institutions Promoting Peace, and Teaching Contemporary Conflicts. The Peace Pathways Committee will provide support in creating relevant, high-interest lesson plans reflective of the workshop topics.

On February 21, teachers will reconvene to share ideas about their peace-themed lesson plans and student projects addressing topics on peace, equity, justice, and non-violence. Participating teachers will be granted free student field trips to tour the Museum and utilize its many educational resources. On April 29, 2023, the Peace Pathways cohort will reconvene to discuss outcomes and celebrate the completion of the course.
