Summary describing your organization:: Adhering to this philosophy, SPNPJ has sponsored World Peace Clubs at San Pedro, Banning, West High, Carson, and Palos Verdes High Schools. We believe that involving our youth is key to promoting racial harmony and, as a result, a peaceful world. To that end, we conduct a yearly summer peace camp in the Santa Monica Mountains. The week-long curriculum is guided by teachers and community leaders. Included are exercises in tolerance, self-expression, self-esteem, and organizing techniques. It also provides opportunities for student leaders from the different schools to interact in positive and effective ways. Angels Gate Park is the site of the Peace Camp's culmination activity, which includes art, music, poetry, and skits. Families, friends and SPNPJ members attend.
