High School Program
Our objective for older students (ages 14-17) is for them to internalize the 4-way test and understand that their decisions impact not just them, but many others around them. Their real-life situations tend to be more complex, with potentially far-reaching consequences, often impacting the direction of their life.
Engaging these students as mentors for the elementary students through the Peaceful Schools Program is an excellent way to accomplish these objectives. The program requires them to assess their own values, explain the 4-way test and its meaning to young children, examine the program’s stories using the 4-way test, recognize the influence they have as role models to these younger students, and accept responsibility for their words and actions.
