For example, over the last two weeks we hosted a group of 25 children from 12 countries. The group was organized by Pittsburgh CISV, a youth program whose mission is to foster world peace through friendship, inter-cultural exchange, and education. The students, from countries like Ecuador, Brazil, and France, met to discuss how sustainable development can promote peace. They also learned conflict resolution skills through several experiential learning activities.
At Family Resources we are committed to nonviolence and are delighted to host this group of young leaders. CISV Pittsburgh's work resonates deeply with our mission of strengthening families and neighborhoods. Our prevention, intervention, and treatment services contribute to community development and sustainability. We believe that developing close relationships and strong support networks is an essential part of peace building, which starts at the family level and ultimately impacts our global community.
We are proud to continue our tradition as a place where growth and change take place. Learn more about how you can help us keep this tradition alive and make our Retreat Center available to low-income youth around Pittsburgh.
