Nonviolent Schools RI

Our latest news and updates


We are excited to announce that one of NSRI's training teams has just finished conducting our first training of 2017! Twenty-six educators and administrators from the 3 Newport schools (Pell Elementary, Thompson Middle, and Rogers High School), attended the 20-hour after school training. Trainers Gail Faris and Robin Wildman taught the participants how to begin to create a Beloved Community at their perspective schools. The work will continue with mentors Autumn Francesca, Wendy Bowen, and Amy Leonard, who will work with the educators on how to practice and implement the Kingian curriculum. One of NSRI's goals is to help educators improve the climate and culture of their schools. Newport educators are on their way to doing this!
