What happens in a TREE workshop?
In TREE workshops, the goal is to equip youth with social-emotional skills to acknowledge and manage conflict in their most important relationships. We use games, simulations, discussion and individual reflection to learn and practice the skills they need to transform conflict positively, like active listening, mindfulness, anti-bullying, teamwork, and empathy. All programs include content from four key concepts; principles of peace, principles of conflict, relationships with others, and relationship with ourselves. Together, these concepts come together to create a holistic tool kit for healthy conflict resolution.
How do you design your curriculum?
Our programs are designed in partnership with our advisory committee, which includes certified educators, facilitators, and peace practitioners.
How long is the booking process?
Is there a maximum of students per workshop?
We work with one class of students at a time, with a maximum of 30 students per classroom workshop.
Do you have any resources for teachers?
Yes! Teachers who host TREE Classroom programs will receive our Peaceful Classrooms Guide, and a grade-specific activity guide. Our blog shares resources and ideas for educators and families to build conflict resolution skills and positive classroom culture.
