Client: Kids Create Peace
VitalenLIGHTenment Project: Design new site.
Web Address: www.kidscreatepeace.org

Project scope: The approach of KCP is unique –It’s pre-emptive. It teaches kids how to prevent conflict before it begins, by increasing harmony and cooperation instead of competition in school, on the playground and home environments.

Program Goals: Students learn how to cooperate, to treat each other with respect, create together, and transform disagreements – even conflict – into peaceful and productive outcomes.

Attaining the Goals: Kids Create Peace is an hour in length, offered once a week, during or after the school day. A variety of methods engage the kids, including discussion, video clips, skits, student presentations, games, and role-playing. This direct experience of the shifts they can create in relationships, circumstances and events empowers them to carry what they now know to all parts of their lives.

Sites for the Program currently are public, charter and private schools in the Coachella Valley, California school districts. The pilot year (2011-12) was hosted by Vista del Monte Elementary, in Palm Springs. Its success, illustrated by videos and in parent, teacher and student surveys, brought invitations from four schools in Coachella for 2012-13; endorsed and funded by ASES – (After School Education and Safety), a program of the YMCA.

Lacking a lot of expertise in web design and the members with skills to keep it up, we searched for a company that had proven itself in excellent design, responsiveness, and support. We discovered Vortices Design and could not be happier. Within months they created an elegant yet functional design that was easy to navigate and ported over all of the relevant documents and links from our previous web site. The WordPress features allow us to distribute the workload of keeping the site current and communicating with members in a timely way. David Maria is the Poster Person of Patience, and his help is invaluable. Every question and request is handled with promptness and professionalism. I have no reservation in recommending their services to you.
