Our Cohort 11 SEED program was an amazing group, eager to learn and explore the intersections of nonviolence, social justice, and community. Cohort members were incredibly supportive of each other, providing the motivation needed to analyze and reflect on the nonviolence principles that the NVI Team presented to them.

The two-week job training curriculum sets the stage for honest and open discussions and prepares the participants to navigate the challenges and successes that come their way before and after graduating high school. We look
forward to our next class and hope if you know someone who'd like to participate, to refer them to us with the application here.
