Youth Day 2018
Friday, October 5, 2018
9:00 AM until 12:00 Noon
at the 2018 ACR Conference
The 2018 annual meeting of the Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR) set for October 3-6, 2018 will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Pittsburgh-Green Tree, 500 Mansfield Avenue, Pittsburgh. The Education, Research and Training (ERT) Section of ACR advances K-12 conflict resolution education.
On Friday, October 5, 2018 ERT Section will sponsor an event designed to raise awareness with high school youth about ways of resolving conflict.
Peace Circles Training will be conducted by the Center for Community Dialogue based in Tucson, AZ. The training will be designed for high-school age youth interested in learning how to resolve differences. Students will leave the training knowing how to factitiate a circle process. Peace Circles are an ancient and contemporary way to address conflict and tends to build community.
The program will be held at the DoubleTree during school hours, exact times to be determined. The ERT Section is now looking for teachers and schools willing to commit to bringing their students to the program. ACR can cover transportation costs and will provide lunch. Because of space limitations, this program will be limited to about 40 students from Pittsburgh area schools.

We look forward to seeing you at Youth Day on October 5, 2018.
