A New Chapter for Tribes Learning Communities
When Jeanne Gibbs wrote the first Tribes book in the 1970’s, little did she realize that the Tribes Learning Community process would help build community in educational settings well into the 21st century. In the last 25 years, with the support of many dedicated staff and district trainers, Tribes has reached over 46,000 educators and their students in over 10,500 schools in 43 countries. This leading social emotional learning (SEL) program currently offers training for elementary, middle and high school educators, as well as after school and youth development programs.
The future of Tribes is now brighter than ever!
Jeanne and her home tribe are pleased to announce that Peace Learning Center in Indianapolis will be leading Tribes Learning Communities forward. After years of collaborative efforts between CenterSource and Peace Learning Center, two like-minded organizations, we are collectively excited about this new chapter for Tribes. TLC to PLC… a perfect fit!
Peace Learning Center’s approach to social emotional learning and bullying prevention involves engaging the entire school community to change the culture of the school into a place where differences are embraced, youth have a voice, and everyone can coexist peacefully. Peace Learning Center programs empower youth to be peacemakers while inspiring them to take responsibility for their education and their actions.
Longtime Tribes Staff Trainers will continue to facilitate training, consult and mentor new trainers under PLC’s direction. This collaborative union of talented staff will ensure a successful transition for Tribes and an expansion of SEL offerings for years to come.
As fellow Tribes enthusiasts, we appreciate your continued support in this exciting next step for Tribes!
