Scholars of Peace

Scholars of Peace from Mali to Mississippi

The Scholars of Peace program is Nollie’s Community Service Learning for Social change action          research project designed to promote positive socio-economic change in Holmes County, MS. The  goal is to engage K-12 students, their parents and schools in learning activities, community-based  service-learning placement experiences, and special student-designed projects that address social and  environmental needs specified by community-based organizations.

The program is working to establish a formal  partnership between community partners and  stakeholders in the Holmes County School District to create a new Mentor-in-Training and Peer Mediation which we call the Scholars of Peace.
