Peace Week Bucks County 2010.

The mission of Peace Week Bucks County 2010 is to promote the importance of peace and non-violence in schools and communities and to empower youth against violent behavior.

This is the seventh year for Peace Week in Bucks County. The Peace Center along with Bucks Promise for Youth and Communities (a countywide consortium of community coalitions, health and social service agencies and other organizations) is coordinating the Peace Week efforts this year.

Peace Week Bucks County began in 2003 when Brandon Wolff, a high school senior who started SAVE R US (Students Against Violence Everywhere Are Us), and Natalie Kaye, a former Community Mobilizer of the Central Bucks Cares community group, organized a coalition of 12 organizations and 2 school districts to coordinate a county-wide series of events to promote non-violence in schools and communities.

Several school districts and agencies are participating this year in Peace Week Bucks County 2010. Activities and events that have been scheduled will encourage nonviolence in schools and communities. Click here to see attached document of scheduled events.

All events are free and open to the public.
