Transforms Young People
Mentoring Peace Through Art transforms young people by absolutely accepting each MuralWorker as competent. We enlist them as MuralWorkers and engage them in the responsible work of transforming their community. MuralWorkers practice the soft skills that are essential for successful work places. They are required to be responsible for their own timeliness, safety, work duties and responsibilities to the fulfillment to the objective. They are required to practice cooperative and focused participation. We use a secret approach to build competency – positive peer pressure to get every youth to be the best worker they can be, because the group refuses to accept anything less.
