Students in the woodshop class at Chief Sealth International High School, located in West Seattle, banded together with students from the City of Seattle Youth Employment Program &Youth Violence Prevention Initiative to build a 36 square-foot wooden playhouse. These students came from diverse backgrounds, from students whose families struggle to make ends meet to students who come from middle class homes. Even students who are members of rival gangs put aside their differences to lend a hammer to this Peace Playhouse. Work continued outside class as well. Over 20 students worked on this playhouse over the summer and the finishing touches were made this fall. The students were inspired by the mission of El Centro de la Raza and made the generous decision to donate the product of their hard work to their 2013 "Bulding the Beloved Community" Gala. It was made by peace, for peace.
