AMS Peace Retreat

2016 American Montessori Society Peace Retreat

 “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
—Mahatma Gandhi

The AMS Peace Retreat is an opportunity to learn new ideas about peace education—and to relax and rejuvenate with colleagues in a beautiful natural setting.

Our last retreat, held in fall 2016, took us to Loranger, LA, for a focus on service learning. Activities included a Day of Service in nearby New Orleans, where we helped to rebuild homes devastated by Hurricane Katrina more than 10 years earlier. Retreat participants earned 15 hours of continuing professional development.

We will post information about the next AMS Peace Retreat when it is available.
