Program Type: Evidence Based Practice - Programs formally evaluated to be effective, sometimes called "Best Practices", that can be replicated and implemented, even with modifications in other settings
PeaceBuilders is a school-wide violence prevention program for elementary schools (K-5). The program incorporates a strategy to change the school climate implemented by staff and students and is designed to promote prosocial behavior among students and adults. Children learn five simple principles: 1) praise people; 2) avoid put-downs; 3) seek wise people as advisors and friends; 4) notice and correct hurts we cause; and 5) right wrongs. Adults reinforce and model behaviors at school, at home, and in public places.
