Safe, Positive Learning Environments
PeaceBuilders, created by psychologist Dennis Embry, is a long-term community-based program designed to help create a school environment that reduces violence. It was approved by the federally funded Safe and Drug Free Schools Act and named on the Science-Based Programs list, indicating "exemplary" status by the California Department of Education. This program is in use in nearly 400 elementary schools across the country, and the numbers continue to grow.
I am a PeaceBuilder. I pledge...
To praise people,
To give up put-downs,
To seek wise people,
To notice and speak up about hurts I have caused,
To right wrongs,
To help others.
I will build peace at home, at school and
in my community each day.
