At the Summer Institute you will learn:
"The Kingian Nonviolence training has not only changed my way of teaching but has truly changed my way of life! I used to be a conflict avoider, but now I have tools to help me feel confident in reconciling conflict big and small. Having a core set of principles, concrete steps to solving conflicts, and a whole community working together makes for a school where everyone is valued, listened to, and all have the same goal...a PEACEFUL community. In our current society, it gives me hope knowing that I am teaching myself, my students, and my own children at home skills that can be carried through life."

We believe that every child deserves to experience the joy of learning in a Nonviolent school environment. We must take steps towards reducing violence by bringing Nonviolence education into classrooms. School staff that is dedicated to practicing Nonviolence can transform the climate (social-emotional) and culture (procedures and policies) of their school, so that it continues to be a place where everyone feels respected, safe, and loved.
There are many ways for you to be involved in our organization. Please join Nonviolent Schools RI as it brings its mission forward to create the Beloved Community in our schools. Spread the word in your school district and wider community!
Have you been searching for ways to transform your classroom to a more inclusive, productive learning environment? If so, then the Nonviolent Schools Summer Institute is what you have been looking for! This is a unique opportunity for public, private, and charter school educators, school staff, and administrators , as well as those who work with youth in other capacities, to learn how to improve the climate and culture in their classrooms and schools, through the use of conflict reconciliation skills, Nonviolence principles, community building strategies, and more! Social-Emotional Learning (SEL), Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), and educational justice are what our Institute is all about!
Working with Dr. Melissa Marcotte, professor from Rhode Island College, we now have research that proves the effectiveness of our training. Check out the full report here:
"When I Get Grown," a film based on Dr. Clayborne Carson's interviews with American civil rights activist Bernard LaFayette Jr., explores LaFayette's experiences as a Freedom Rider and his role in the Civil Rights Movement. The film highlights the Freedom Riders’ commitment to end segregation and underscores the importance of black resistance in the struggle for equal rights and justice.
