ABOUTThe Campus Peace-Building Initiative is made up of a group of professionals that provide training and resources for educational institutions, youth development organizations, and individuals that are working to make our schools places of peace and harmony.
The initiative is an effort governed by the Golden Rule - the simple yet transformational skill that seeks solve social conflicts, promotes civility, and facilitates peace.
OUR HISTORY CPBI was founded by Jeff Veley to facilitate the development of resources and conversations around reducing aggression. In addition, the initiative takes time to honor individuals that are dramatically changing school culture through their efforts.
Jeff Veley is a popular speaker and social skills educator with over a decade of experience in developing prevention and intervention programs for educational institutions. His work has reached over one million people and he is recognized as a World Peace Ambassador by the United Nations.
OUR PHILOSOPHYCPBI shares the Peace Sign Approach, a psychological approach to social aggression that empowers targets with social and emotional coping skills. The Pathway to Peace Framework supports schools in developing people, programs, policies, and processes. We believe that the best way to bring peace and civility is through resilience education, social and emotional learning, and community dialogue.OUR EFFORTSNational Tour - "Love Changes It All Tour"Free Resources - Training for students, parents, educators, mental health professionals, and community leaders.Consulting - Our partners help transform school culture through our framework.Curriculum - Golden Rule Ambassadors: Student-Led Challenges in Civility & Citizenship
