To qualify for the scholarship the participant(s) must; 1) be between the ages of 16 – 25; 2) have a vested interest in making change in our society; and 3) be committed to attending the entirety of the two-day Nonviolence 365™ training.

TO BE ADDRESSED
Nonviolence 365™ Education and Training is a critical step in the “Pilgrimage to Nonviolence”, in which people embrace and actualize Nonviolence as a lifestyle. It will empower participants to have a posture of Nonviolence in their thinking, speaking and acting. Therefore, Nonviolence is not reactive, but intrinsic. Nonviolence 365™ Education and Training will also serve as a mechanism for changing the way that individuals approach problems, conflict, tension, violence and differences by providing a holistic means for responding in a nonviolent manner. In addition, NV365™ provides character education within the modules that convey Dr. King’s philosophy, perspectives and leadership style.

PROJECT OBJECTIVES & OUTCOMES
Using the six principles and steps that serve as the foundation for NV365™, participants have reported that the training:
• Provides character education in the form of insight into the life, philosophy and methods of Dr. Martin Luther
King, Jr.
• Cultivates leadership skills and attributes relative to Dr. King’s nonviolent leadership, philosophy and
methodology;
• Provides resources to begin a Pilgrimage to Nonviolence and embrace NV365 as a lifestyle;
• Clarifies conflict resolution versus conflict reconciliation;
• Reduces family, workforce and community conflict, violence and tension;
• Enables individuals to better manage community conflict so that it doesn’t escalate to violence;
• Provides relationship-building and problem-solving skills;
• Focuses on the root cause of violence and not the symptoms;
• Decreases the potential for community unrest and people resorting to violence; and
• Encourages people to be proactive in identifying violence prone situations and the skills needed to address those situations.
