Haven is the first social network for students and educators who are working to improve their schools’ social climates via approaches such as peer mediation, prejudice reduction, bullying prevention, social emotional learning, and restorative justice. This site provides a safe and essential community for students and educators to connect with each other, share ideas, and support each other’s work.
Our site features a resource library full of up-to-date useful materials for reference on subjects such as conflict resolution, bullying prevention, and safety for students of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities. Members can also take it upon themselves to take Haven’s online conflict resolution course which utilizes engaging and unique interactive experiences. The lessons are infused with original Haven multimedia content created through our partnership with the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts (LACHSA).
