Grants Promote Conflict Resolution Skills for Elementary School Students
The JAMS Foundation/ACR Initiative for Students and Youth provides grants for conflict prevention and dispute resolution programs for K-12 students and for adults working with youth populations in ways that directly transfer conflict resolution education (CRE) skills from adults to youth. The focus for 2020 is on the reduction in anti-social behavior in the school building as well as outside the schoolhouse and an increase in the development of CRE skills in and with youth that modifies the normative culture and enhances positive school climate in elementary schools.
Grants will range from $15,000 to $40,000. Initial project idea descriptions must be submitted by January 6, 2020; invited full proposals will be due May 15, 2020.
