I Am An Apprentice of Peace

Now Registering Middle and High School Aged Students

The I Am an Apprentice of Peace Program is an opportunity for students to find and define themselves – focusing on mentorship, wellness, common sense, and social responsibility. This program has been designed to provide students with an exciting experience that goes beyond traditional classroom learning.

Students begin by learning the AOPYO 9 Point Philosophy  – Realization, Committed Effort, and Accepting Principles of Change (RCA) – then work to create an individual GPS: Goal, Plan, Strategy to become their best selves in the community and world.
