Global Peace Services USA (GPS) is a movement to promote education, skills training and awareness in support of a professional peace service and within the service professions, based on a philosophy of active nonviolence.
GPS has been developing innovative pilot education and training projects in peacebuilding and developing a broad-based membership.
Members are invited to meetings, receive our newsletter, and support GPS financially. Their ideas for the development of the movement are encouraged and welcomed.
Members are encouraged to work together on specific projects and areas of interest, such as organizing local GPS meetings and developing, testing, and promoting peace service curricula.
