Building on a Strong Foundation
Our first-ever Comprehensive Development Campaign will raise 3 million dollars over 3 years and supports 3 comprehensive areas of development: Capital, Endowment, and Expansion.

NPA at Point of View
Point of View is an international retreat and research center dedicated to peace - a "Civilian Camp David" - located at George Mason University's School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (S-CAR). Through an historic collaboration between NPA and S-CAR, Point of View is expanding to include residential facilities and opportunities for joint NPA/S-CAR programming.

The Five Spheres of Peace
Based on the Earth Charter’s definition of peace, NPA’s programs and initiatives focus on five interrelated and interdependent spheres of peace: personal, social, political, institutional, and ecological.
