The 2022 Peacemaker Awards will recognize local and regional awardees as well. The event also shines a spotlight on Soul Shoppe’s proven Peacemaker Program. Because of the impact of Covid-19, the need has never been greater. According to the National Academy of Pediatrics, there is a “National Emergency in child and adolescent mental health.”
The sad truth: 76% of students reported lower morale during the pandemic. And when students did return to the classroom, stress and short tempers saw schools struggle with student behavior. School bullying triggers a cycle of fear and trauma that impedes focus, learning, and essential human and psychological development.
Soul Shoppe’s “whole school” approach provides conflict resolution resources to change all that. The non-profit organization is a leading provider of social-emotional learning (SEL). This education practice integrates social and emotional skills into a school’s curriculum.
