TIPS Students Start New Semester of Creating Peaceful Solutions
Teens Inventing Peaceful Solutions (TIPS)
A new season of TIPS is well under way 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.
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 before breaking at Thanksgiving 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.
