Help Increase the Peace (HIP) a project of the American Friends Service Committee. “HIPP, teaches young people and adults communication skills for conflict resolution. And it does more. HIPP confronts prejudice and renews our hope to be agents for positive social change. The training introduces alternatives to violence and bullying and allows participants to practice various options by modeling and role playing. Exercises include self-affirmation and discovery of how insensitivity can magnify problems. HIPP uses serious discussion of issues, activities that practice finding win-win solutions, and games that promote cooperation and communication. It’s straightforward and fun. HIPP affirms that there are choices, and just as we learn violence, so can we learn to respond with the alternatives. HIPP allows youth and adults to practice techniques they discover, one-on-one within the group. The accumulation of these skills then leads to a focus on community action and social change.” – www.afsc.org/hipp/
