Responsiblity 

Communication 

Positive behavior

April Richardson comes with love and passionate, teaching many young people to learn how to share, care, love one another. This class is an awesome beginning stages of children learning and taking responsiblitly for their actions, no matter what they are feeling inside. 
To every student who attends this class will learn the  importance of peacemaking skills in their daily lives. Peacemakers class will also help students to understand the causes of conflict, and teach them how to resolve conflict peacefully as children. Violence is pervasive in our culture and impacts our young people every day, from guns on the streets to bullies in schools, intolerance, and our inability to connect with, respect, and be kind to each other. These experiences have a devastating effect on young people's healthy development, and contributes to a cycle that is at the root of so many other problems in our world.

My goal is to have students recognize exclusionary behavior when it happens and to identify places and situations in which exclusion may occur. Unfortunately, not enough young people are being called to act and supported to create powerful solutions and being apart of the NMVYC students will have a change  of


behavior experience.  Peacemakers class is to develop the needs of young people and to help them develop and practice positive behaviors.Peacemakers class will address in eduating with hands on curriculcum, such as friendship, fairness, cooperation, conflict resolution, and consequences of actions, all through the use of experiential activities and cooperative games.

ABOUT ME


No More Violence Organization started in memory of Deonte (DJ) Johnson killed April 2011 and started the Organization September 2011 in memory of DJ. Deonte was a young man who was loved by many, a young man full of life. A brother of two siblings and a wonderful mother, April Richarsdson.

Deonte was an innocent child playing outside his apartment complex when a group of yong men outside fighting ran over DJ. However, Deonte Johnson unfortunately, became brain dead and did not survived. Across the world, teen fighting and violence has become a serious problem and we as the community have to stand together to help the youth make better decision-making. 

No More Violence Organization is the voice to help seek justice and support families of the vicitms. The Organization implements many positive alternative programs for the youth such as the NMVYC to provide better opportunities to engage students to make better decision-making
