Service for Peace


Service For Peace is a global service learning organization connecting people to peace through service. Service For Peace (SFP) began in 2002 when 300 international youth volunteers from across the United States, converged on Washington, DC, to participate in a summer program that involved a total of 40,000 hours of service and, according to the Washington Post, saved the District $400,000.

Puget Sound Community School

PugetSOUND schoolAt PSCS, our first focus is not limited to an academic program; our focus is on the full range of human development.   Our product is a safe, loving, nurturing environment in which the curriculum is responsibility and the goal for our graduates is maturity. We surround students with talented people of high character who help them find out what they’re passionate about, and then help them DO something with that passion.

Academics—delivered to students by a teaching staff with degrees from some of the most prestigious universities in the country—are a natural by-product of this environment. It’s a philosophy grounded in the most robust findings in behavioral science over the past 40 years, as well as first-hand observation of how kids learn and grow.

We ask students to dedicate themselves to three simple “core commitments”

Practice Integrity. Engage the Community. Act with Courage.
