Peaceful Schools International (PSI) is a non-profit, charitable organization. PSI was founded by Hetty van Gurp in 2001 in response to international requests for support similar to that offered to many Canadian schools. The vision of PSI is to create a global network of peaceful schools. The mission of PSI is to provide support and recognition to schools that have declared a commitment to creating and maintaining a culture of peace. PSI has over 200 member schools around the world! In these schools, students, teachers and community members work together to ensure that everyone feels safe, respected and valued.
