A deficiency exists for at-risk-youth who attend Denver Public School's ACE Community Challenge Charter School. They lack the skills to understand how to transform a cycle of violence and crime to one of creative dialogue to mitigate a pattern of unstable conflict behavior. This population of at-risk-youth has limited methods and resources to transfer from this conflict cycle to a productive emotional level of intelligence to provide them with the ability to work through conflict using logic and reasoning instead of violence. Left unaddressed these cultural conflicts will continue to pervade the public school sector. This Capstone Project responds to that need by implementing a Conflict to Peace Transformational Workshop.
