- Since its inception in 1973, the Non-Violence and Children Committee (NVC) has explored the values, skills, and supports which enable children to develop powerful, nonviolent responses to violence. They work with Monthly Meetings, Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, Friends' and non-Quaker schools, the wider community and within their own committee, to support nonviolent approaches to conflict and differences, and to nurture children in the ways of peacemaking. The committee organizes and often facilitates workshops on topics pertinent to their cause and engages in work sessions to generate approaches to be shared with others. In keeping with the structural changes of the Yearly Meeting in 1998, the members of the Nonviolence and Children Committee reformed themselves into the Nonviolence and Children Concerns Group under the jurisdiction of the Standing Committee on Education.
