Morningside Center for Teaching Social Responsibility, founded in 1982, educates young people for hopeful and intelligent engagement with their world. They envision human societies that are just, peaceful, environmentally sustainable, and truly democratic, and they pursue this vision every day in schools, working hand in hand with educators to build students' social and emotional skills, strengthen the classroom and school community, and use restorative practices to make our schools more caring and equitable. Their PAZ After-school program help children learn to communicate better, identify and express feelings, manage anger, handle conflicts nonviolently, cooperate with peers, respect differences, stand up to bias, and make healthy life choices.
