The Peaceful Schools program, developed in Syracuse, New York, focuses on promoting healthy conflict resolution in schools. Originally developed in response to New York’s Schools Against Violence in Education Act, the Peaceful School model fosters the resiliency skills of cooperation, assertion, responsibility, empathy, and self-control in order to decrease instances of in-school violence.

The Peaceful Skills website offers resources for educators to use in the classroom, including lesson plans, activity guides, worksheets, and classroom posters. It also directs teachers and administrators to literature guides and professional development opportunities such as trainings and workshops on different methods of healthy conflict resolution and mediation. The website also includes information for parents to help support social and emotional learning at home.
