    The Loras College Peace Institute is a DAY CAMP experience from 9am-7pm, February 25, 26 & 27. 

    Twenty-five high school-aged youth will have the opportunity to explore peace-building strategies with Loras College staff and Dubuque-area community leaders. 

    Participants will learn concrete strategies that enable them to discover paths to peace with self, community, creation, and the world. Applicants from a variety of faith traditions and racial and economic backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

    HERE IS WHAT WE ARE PLANNING:

    -  Small group activities related to nonviolence and social justice.

    -  Exploring interfaith cooperation and peacebuilding across lines of religious and cultural difference.

    -  Touring the Loras campus and getting to know Loras students involved in Peace and Justice.

    -  Optional morning yoga and mindfulness sessions.

    -  Option to meet with professors in your field of interest on the final day of the Peace Institute.

    *Please note that the Peace Institute cannot provide overnight accommodations this year.

    Due to low registration numbers we have cancelled this event.  If you have questions please contact Hannah Eby at hannah.eby@loras.edu
