Mission

Silicon Valley FACES is dedicated to creating and promoting an empathetic and inclusive community free of bias, bigotry and violence through our programs and advocacy. We accomplish our mission through age-appropriate experiential learning programs that teach empathy, inclusiveness, effective communication skills, conflict resolution, and the constructive leadership skills needed to disseminate these attributes among classmates, colleagues, and the community at large.

Programs

Camp Everytown is an intensive youth leadership development program based on core values - respect, acceptance, and responsibility - that promote non-violent campus communities. The nationally recognized program focuses students' attention and promotes learning by taking them out of their daily environment and guiding them through intense interactions that provoke deep insight and empathy for others. The Leadership Institute incorporates a variety of hands-on interactive experiences to promote the leadership skills of middle- and high-school students. Graduates of the Leadership Institute are equipped with the tools and vocabulary to become role models and effective leaders. Sessions can be tailored to groups of any size and can be offered as individual modules or part of a complete curriculum. FACES delivers conflict management and resolution training in the education, corporate, and government sectors. Participants engage in open and honest dialogue and learn skills to improve effective communication in a multicultural environment. They discover how perceptions, attitudes and behaviors impact the workplace and the community. Programs are designed to meet the needs of each client and to improve the community as a whole.
