Everyone like to have the full benefits of a unified community but very few people in our world know how to achieve it. The global crisis of violence facing all humanity is calling upon everyone to take the building and sustaining unified communities as an essential goal of any curriculum of education.
PEP designs very engaging and effective lesson plans for teaching unity in diversity. The above video is a summary of a series of lessons and activities, songs, art, and skits, that provides multiple opportunities for students to experience the feel of being in a unified and loving community. This pilot program is in its second year of serving the Palomares Academy of Health Sciences thanks to the loving support of Superintendent Richard Martinez and Principal Dr. Camille Beal. We hope like-minded organizations around the globe find our program inspiring and useful.
I thank my talented and dedicated team of coordinators and animators Natalie Vigil, Valerie Zamora, Susan Selfridge, Eddie Zamora, and Nadereh De Oro, and the delightful students and parents of PEP.
