Axis of Hope, Who We Are And What We Do

A Revolution in Conflict Resolution!

Axis of Hope is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing in young adults an understanding of alternative, non-violent approaches to resolving complex conflicts locally, nationally and internationally.

Axis of Hope teaches students of diverse backgrounds about conflict analysis, management and prevention in ways that enliven the imagination, awaken moral reasoning, and impart lifelong social and civic skills. Through highly interactive workshops in public and independent middle and high schools, Axis of Hope introduces students to the study of international conflict and fosters the development of valuable negotiation skills.

Axis of Hope seeks to change the landscape of conflict and to create the prospect of future peace:

  • By fostering effective global citizenship skills in students and teachers of diverse backgrounds.
  • By promoting intensive, hands-on learning opportunities through “intellectual Outward Bound” geo-political role-play case studies.
  • By teaching the world’s youth to develop trust, compassion and empathy for one another, and for people around the world.
  • By nurturing empathy and broader perspectives that dramatically impact local behaviors and compassion.
