What does it mean to walk with a generation of young people and their families as they grow into peacemakers and peace leaders? This is what we have been doing for the last 15 years through the Peace Programs of SOLA Community Peace Center in South L.A.
Two of SOLA's young adult leaders - Shawntelle Augustine and Mark Mendez - will join us to talk about the impact these programs have had on their lives and answer questions. Dr. Susan Stouffer, Executive Director of SOLA and an ICUJP Board member, will also be present to discuss the programs and answer questions.
Shawntelle Augustine is the Assistant Peace Camp Director and Mark Mendez is the lead Youth Teacher in Peace Camp for ages 11-13. Additionally, Mark was the Margaret Lindgren ICUJP Youth Intern for two years when he was in high school.
Dr. Susan Stouffer founded SOLA in 2019, building on many previous years of work through the UUC Peace Center. The Center's mission is to offer life-transforming programs to create a more peaceful and just community and world. Young people, families, and community members, particularly those who are economically disadvantaged, are empowered to succeed in life through peace education, leadership skills, and self-development.
