Welcome to Nonviolent Schools RI


We believe that every child deserves to experience the joy of learning in a Nonviolent school environment.  We must take steps towards bringing Nonviolence education into classrooms. School staff that is dedicated to practicing Nonviolence can transform the culture and climate of their school, so that it is a place where students feel respected, safe, and loved.

Have you been searching for ways to transform your classrooms to a more inclusive, productive learning environment? If so, then the Nonviolent Schools Winter Institute is what you have been looking for! This is a unique opportunity for public, private, and charter school educators and administrators  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!
