TIPS Students Ready for a New Year of Peace Activism-New Members Welcome!
Teens Inventing Peaceful Solutions
The winter 2017 session of the TIPS program is set to begin at the Dayton International Peace Museum. The number of students has doubled since last Spring's inaugural debut of the group with students from over ten Dayton area middle and high schools. New teens are always welcome to join!
The group meets on Saturday afternoons at the Museum and ends every session with a 'family style' feast of good food and conversation. One of the major goals in 2017 is to create individual projects revolving around social justice in their schools and communities. One project that is under way already is the support of the Native American Indians fighting to protect sacred land and water from oil pipelines construction in South Dakota. Other projects will be focused on the Miami Valley and issues directly related to our schools and neighborhoods.
