Collaborative Efforts

Posted on: March 9th, 2012 by admin No Comments

The Mattie J.T. Stepanek Foundation proudly collaborates with educators and other peace-related organizations in many ways. We work with teachers who embed a message of hope and peace in lesson plans, and we gather, review, and share many of those lessons and ‘Teacher Tips’ for other educators. Mattie’s mom, Jeni, often visits local schools or participates in Skype chats with schools across the country and around the world, where students are learning about Mattie’s life, legacy, and vision of personal and world peace.

Our Foundation also supports the mission and programs of many other groups and organizations that promote peace. Some of these organizations are ones that Mattie and Jeni worked with as advocates for many years, and others are just learning about Mattie’s message and how, together, we can move the world closer to Mattie’s belief that “Peace is Possible!”

The Mattie J.T. Stepanek Foundation is always appreciative of efforts by individuals, organizations, businesses, and schools to share Mattie’s message, and in doing so, support the mission of our Foundation.
