The 3rd Annual PCRC Benefit Dinner recognizes the recognition of the positive impact of extraordinary charity by ordinary people. We celebrate the power of applied justice and compassion that can change lives every day for our neighbors in San Mateo County. Proceeds from this event directly fund necessary services that improve the quality of life for more then 35,000 people in San Mateo and surrounding Counties, without regard for race, religious affiliation or gender. The Peninsula Conflict Resolution Center (PCRC) is a nationally recognized leader in mediation, facilitation, conflict resolution and training. We are at the forefront of ongoing efforts to reduce violence by addressing the root causes of poverty and inequity. PCRC’s anti-bullying intervention, Building Empathy and Respect (BER), partners with schools to teach youth and their parents about the harmful impact of disrespectful behavior and how to develop empathy and respect for others. Our dialogue work explores the negative effect of verbal aggression and the potentially devastating impact on children’s self-esteem. Our trained volunteers mediate disputes by helping conflicting parties communicate effectively, uncover common interests and reach positive resolution. Young adults build valuable life skills to better manage conflict, and learn to serve as community leaders. Parents and teachers learn effective communication techniques and skills to establish safe and respectful homes and positive classroom environments. PCRC Partners have felt the immediate impact of our services as noted by a school counselor: “BER program participants have improved their behavior. Teachers...see a change in their respect for others. Parents have appreciated how the BER program has opened needed discussion between them and their children.” OUR VISION FOR THE FUTURE PCRC’s ongoing plan is to continue providing these valuable services in San Mateo County. PCRC’s goal is to develop partnerships with social network services to create interactive, web-based conflict resolution resources for youth, parents, and community members. Finally, PCRC seeks to serve as a national model for mediation and community outreach. We invite you to become a part of this worthy effort.
Words From the Executive Director Dear Potential Sponsor: In the U.S., every two hours a young person between the ages of 15 and 24 takes their own life. Often, this tragedy is triggered by bullying at school or through the Internet. Sadly, bullying has gotten a lot of media attention in recent months, with headlines capturing the tragic results of verbal and physical abuse. This national epidemic has touched people of all ages, to a devastating degree. We at the Peninsula Conflict Resolution Center believe bullying is preventable with empathetic communication combined with training and education. We offer these skills through our comprehensive approach to mediation. Mediation is the service for which PCRC was founded in 1986 and continues to be the foundation for our core values that drive our initiatives. Over the past 27 years, PCRC has been recognized as a leader in the fields of mediation and training. A small investment in us can create a huge impact for our community. YOU can make a difference by joining with the efforts of PCRC to raise funds for our three key initiatives: Engaging Communities Initiative – brings together the ideas and voices of all people in our communities and creates opportunities for each of us to have a say in the decisions that affect our lives. Strengthening Families Initiative – assists parents in utilizing community services, maintaining family relationships, and building their leadership skills so they can support their children’s education. Empowering Youth Initiative - creates opportunities for young people to reshape their communities and manage conflicts, by becoming critical thinkers and active participants in developing solutions. PCRC invites you to become a proud sponsor of the 3rd Annual Building Empathy & Respect “BER” anti-bullying fundraiser on Wednesday, November 6th. The Warren Dale Teddy “BER” Award will be presented to Barry Jolette of the San Mateo Credit Union for his longtime leadership in building empathy and respect. Your sponsorship is a great opportunity to partner with us and support our organization’s core mission: to foster collaborative engagement by bringing people together, facilitating conversation, and building these skills in our community.
