By teaching our students to think, care, and act, we empower them to build a peaceful future.

Welcome to Think, Care, Act, where teachers and students can find rationales and resources to infuse required curricula with peace, character, global, and multicultural concepts throughout the year.

To act in a world whose problems seem overwhelming requires being able to use the powers of critical and creative thinking and compassionate and inclusive care. Employing these tools, adults and youth alike can work effectively and conscientiously to solve problems big and small, global and local.

Nicholas Kristof Affirms the Importance of Teachers

When I asked peace educator Irwin Abrams (Antioch College history professor, biographer of Nobel Peace laureates) how to answer those who ask how we know that peace education works, he had a ready answer. "We work for the unseen harvest," Irwin replied, then in his nineties. "There are consequences of the work we do." This article describes the unseen harvest of one teacher's extra-mile teaching. Keep up the great work, teachers! We work for the unseen harvest.  Nicholas Kristof
Teachers have the most important job in America. To understand why, listen to the story of Olly Neal, whose life was turned around by an English teacher.
