welcome to PeaceWiseYouth
Help young people have better relationships and resolve conflict in a healthy way
PeaceWiseYouth is a Christian program that equips young people to deal with challenging relationships and conflict in healthy, constructive & life-changing ways. All courses are created to be led by an adult using the materials we provide.
There are also courses with additional online content and features for Years 7-10.
The course for Years 11-12 and young adults – “Being a peacemaker in a complex world” – uniquely integrates peacemaking principles, worldview thinking and engagement with “hot topics” which often cause conflict.

peacemaking in high school
PeaceWiseYouth courses for high school aged children can be delivered in three main ways…
high schools and beyond
The courses can be taught in class as part of achieving curriculum outcomes.
The course for Years 11-12 and young adults – “Being a peacemaker in a complex world” – is also suitable for teaching to young adults up to around age 25.
The courses for Years 7-8 and Years 9-10 are SRE authorised by the Baptist Union of NSW and approved for use in State high schools in NSW by Generate.
You can teach the material in your homes! For example as part of ongoing family devotions time or as part of a home-schooling programme.
The best way to see if PeaceWiseYouth is suitable for you is to actually have a play with the content from the course you’re interested in.

I have personally seen the impact of using the PeaceWise approach to resolving conflict within the School community and am delighted that teachers and other leaders within schools can learn and apply these principles in their school communities.”
Dr Paul Burgis Principal – PLC Sydney
“What an absolute joy it is to see students’ lives transformed as they learn to be peacemakers who breathe grace and respond to conflict in a way that honours God. I know from personal experience what a change it can make to the whole culture of a school and the relationships within it!”
Judy Linossier, Principal (Drouin)
Chairo Christian School
“As a principal of a Christian School I am excited by the potential of the PeaceWiseKids material. I have personally seen the impact of using the PeaceWise approach to resolving conflict with adults, especially in Christian communities, and look forward to further shaping the lives of the children in our care by embedding the principles of PeaceWise in the life of our school.”
William Rusin, former Principal
Covenant Christian School
“It has been a privilege to use PeaceWiseYouth to introduce our Kids Church Teachers to biblical peacemaking before they teach the PeaceWiseKids version to our little ones. PeaceWiseYouth has prompted lots of discussion and heart searching and has been invaluable as our youth process previous hurts and conflict and seek to be more like Jesus in the future. Thanks PeaceWise!!”
Jay-ellen Wright, Ministry Director
every young person needs help with relationships – just like we do!
It’s normal for every young person to participate in unfriendly behaviour at school or with friends on some level, even in a really subtle or unintentional way. This could be teasing, bullying, exclusion or just plain selfishness.
Our courses help youth understand relationships within a Christian framework in their language and in a fun and interactive way. We give them the practical tools to address their problem relationships and build better friendships.
With their new skills, young people have a greater understanding of themselves and their peers. Being a peacemaker is a “life-skill” they can then take with them for the rest of their lives. And use it to change their world.
