Committee for Children

Type of Organization:Non-governmental - Non-Profit

Committee for Children seeks to foster the social and emotional development, safety, and well-being of children through education and advocacy.

Our nonprofit organization develops and publishes programs and curricula for children from preschool through middle school about social skills, bullying, and sexual abuse, in addition to an emergent literacy program for young children.

We are based in Seattle, Washington, but our programs are now used at 25,000 schools in 21 nations and regions around the world, such as Japan, Norway, and Kurdistan.

Since the 1970s, we’ve been partnering with experts at leading universities and institutes to explore healthy child development and the link between academic achievement and social and emotional competency.

Our programs focus on the essential skills of empathy, impulse control, anger management, problem solving, personal safety, and emergent literacy. Each program takes a unique approach that is based on extensive research to help children succeed in school and in life.

We also conduct evaluation research, provide training and ongoing support to educators and parents, and develop assessment tools for schools and agencies.

Global Peacebuilding Center at the USIP

Type of Organization:Governmental

The United States Institute of Peace (USIP) is the independent, nonpartisan conflict management center created by the U.S. Congress to prevent, mitigate and resolve international conflict without resorting to violence. USIP works to save lives, increase the government’s ability to deal with conflicts before they escalate, reduce government costs, and enhance our national security.

The Global Peacebuilding Center extends USIP’s educational work to new—especially younger—audiences, introducing them to key concepts and skills in conflict management and to the challenges and importance of peacebuilding.

Through multimedia exhibits, educational programs, and online resources and activities (see http://www.buildingpeace.org ), the Global Peacebuilding Center seeks to engage the next generation of peacebuilders.
