Summer Peacebuilding Program, Graduate Certificate in Conflict Transformation, SIT Vermont‏


Summer Peacebuilding Program, Graduate Certificate in Conflict Transformation, SIT Vermont‏

The Conflict Transformation across Cultures-CONTACT program started in
1997 with fourteen participants. Today, CONTACT has hundreds of alumni
from all over the world.

"When I was looking at the world map with my daughter, I discovered

how great CONTACT was. I told her that I know people from everywhere. I
know all these countries now, not only with names with its real people.
CONTACT gave me the opportunity to know how they feel and think. Now, I
look at the map and feel how great it is to know people from all over
the world. Waheed Zahran, Palestine

"My time in CONTACT enhanced my understanding of our humanity. Who

are we? Where are we coming from? CONTACT enabled me to see where I am
in the larger picture of humanity. Now, I'm a part of the greater
community of peacebuilders. Bisrat Abebe Bisrat, Ethiopia
