♥ The Leslie Peer Helpers are the proud recipients of the 2013, 2015, and 2017-2019 Harold Schnitzer Spirit of Unity Awards.
♥ These awards are given out annually to ten middle & high school peace, human rights, and/or conflict resolution clubs from applicants all across the state of Oregon.
♥ Leslie’s Peer Helpers were chosen for their outstanding work for initiating peace and service projects in their school and community with the intent to make our world both a safer and a better place for all.
♥ The Spirit of Unity Award is offered through a grant from the Harold and Arlene Schnitzer CARE Foundation to the Wholistic Peace Institute’s (WPI) Student Peace Education & Leadership Program.
♥ The goal of WPI is to work to develop future peacemakers who can take their place alongside previous Nobel Peace Laureates.
