The Mosaic Project is an Oakland, CA organization that teaches people – from elementary-school students to adults in the workplace – the skills they need to build the peaceful communities they envision.  Since 2000, Mosaic has provided more than 37,000 students and 7,000 adults with immersive, experiential-education programs in diversity, empathy, and conflict resolution.  In 2013, Mosaic won the Association for Experiential Education’s Organization of the Year Award.  (See www.mosaicproject.org.)

 

According to Mosaic’s vision, “We envision peace:  a just, diverse and inclusive world where individuality and community are both core values and where listening, empathy, and assertiveness guide our interactions.”  The organization’s mission is to “work toward a peaceful future by uniting children of diverse backgrounds, providing them with essential community building skills, and empowering them to become peacemakers … Together, we create microcosms of the just, diverse, inclusive world we envision, demonstrate that peace is possible, and inspire action.”

 

Mark Yanez, Mosaic’s Administrative and Outreach Director, first started volunteering with Mosaic’s Outdoor School after receiving a BA in Sociology and Gender Studies from UC Davis.   His activism began when he was 16 years old.  Coming from a low income mostly Latino neighborhood in South Los Angeles, he was part of the street team to increase awareness around LGBT issues and reduce rates of HIV/ AIDS.  He became the first member of his family to attend a four-year college.  While at UC Davis, he continued his activism around LGBT, Chicano and Student movements.  He helped bring low-income students from neighboring communities of Davis onto the campus and to see themselves as potential university students. He also hosted Chicano Youth Empowerment Conferences.

Join this call to learn more from Mark Yanez about the Mosaic Project.  In addition, we will discuss recent and upcoming peacebuilding events.
