PAVE is unique because we utilize high school volunteers as the peer educators in classrooms to make a bigger impact on younger students. These volunteers also receive special trainings that empower them to live more peaceful lives as they develop assets that promote success for themselves. The program then shares all this within the communities and exponentially, the world. The topics of discussion include diversity and tolerance, conflict resolution and anger management, physical assault, abuse and neglect, sexual harassment and assault.
