We celebrate the news of Raven Tukes, our inspiring Education Programs Intern for the past year...Raven_Tukes.jpg

Raven, a senior at College of the Holy Cross, will advance our collective commitment to peace education through her work as a Fulbright Scholar in Taiwan next year after teaching at the African Leadership Academy in South Africa this summer. When she returns, in Fall  2016, she will attend the highly selective International Education Policy Masters program at Harvard University. Raven has aspirations of establishing a non-profit that will provide social justice education to youth and resources situated in regions of conflict, including those in the United States. Undoubtedly her work will influence the trajectory of peace education in the U.S. and internationally. We are so grateful to know Raven, deeply appreciate all of her work for the Center, and certainly wish her all the best in her education and beyond! Congratulations!!
