RISE of Peace Educational Project at Wilbraham & Monson Academy
RISE of Peace, a global non-profit corporation based in West Dover, Vermont, continues in a consulting and advising role with Wilbraham & Monson Academy ("WMA") to supplement its more traditional curricula in international subject matter. WMA is a private, college preparatory school located in Wilbraham, Massachusetts, in the United States.
This "prep" school is expanding its curricular evolution as it aims to be the preeminent Global School® in the nation. RISE of Peace's expertise in conflict prevention and negotiation is serving to assist WMA's faculty by defining key objectives to ensure that students understand how to navigate international conflicts, peace building and cross-cultural communications.
The significance of this educational project is that it will likely advance WMA's standing among all private schools in terms of international peace education and related negotiating skill sets. WMA plans to expand these educational opportunities to provide its students with a competitive edge in certain college studies.
RISE is pleased to assist other schools that may have an interest in a similar educational endeavor. Please contact Jeffrey H. Teitel at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
