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. A school dedicated to practicing Nonviolence can transform the culture and climate, so that classrooms and schools are places where students feel respected and loved.

Have you been searching for ways to transform your classrooms to a more inclusive, productive learning environment? If so, then the Summer Nonviolence Educators Institute is what you have been looking for! This is a unique opportunity for public, private, and charter school educators and administrators from schools in the United States and Canada to learn how to improve the climate and culture in their classrooms and schools, through the use of conflict reconciliation skills, Nonviolence principles, and strategies to enhance the learning spaces in your school. Residence space is available at the University of Rhode Island Kingston campus for out-of-state participants.

"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere" - Dr. King
