JAMS Foundation: Pre-K-12 Conflict Resolution and Training

The Conflict Resolution and Training initiative seeks to support conflict resolution education and training for pre-K through 12th-grade students and youth between the ages of 16 and 18 years old. The pandemic has brought about academic disruption as well as challenges in housing, economics, food, and health security. Massive changes have occurred in every area of life, resulting in unprecedented levels of uncertainty and stress, particularly for youth living in difficult circumstances. This initiative seeks to help to increase participants’ feelings of safety and empowerment during this exceptionally challenging time.

Supported projects will utilize young people as trainers and program implementers to teach and promote conflict resolution skills that create and enhance their ability to express their voices in one of the following settings:

  • Foster care
  • Homeless shelters
  • Domestic violence shelters
  • Youth correctional facilities

Amount: Funding may range from $15,000 – $40,000 for the first year of the potential two-year funding cycle. Year Two funding requests may be for no more than $20,000.

Eligibility: Nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and public agencies working in conjunction with nonprofit educational institutions or organizations.

Deadline: January 11, 2021.

Note: An informational conference call will be held on Monday November 23rd, 2020 at 3:30 PM EST. There is a limited number of spaces for this teleconference; register as soon as possible. Attendance is strongly advised. See program solicitation to register.
