Who We Are

“It helped me to be peaceful and listen to the teacher and to solve things without being mean.”

The FACES Leadership Program, founded in 2010 by the staff of the Center for Nonviolence was a result of revamping our traditional school-based program into a strategic, proactive program that provides long term leadership education and support. The Center’s school-based programming was initially created as a reaction to elementary schools that were requesting services for students who were struggling with issues of violence. The school-based programming was rooted in the rich foundation of the Center’s 26 years of experience working with youth in Fort Wayne, IN. While the intervention model we used for the first three years was effective, conventional wisdom knows that the best way to promote long term change requires more than 5 sessions worth of intervention; with that the FACES Leadership program was envisioned.

With the continued support of the community, our proactive nonviolent leadership program staff will ask two schools a year to scan their student body for group(s) of 10 students, who may be showing their teachers and administrators hints of their leadership potential– in either positive or negative ways and work with them to develop their budding qualities– therefore transforming them into full fledge leaders.
