WinWin, Incorporated, provides education and resources for non-violent conflict management to children and the adults who influence their development. We worked in schools and communities, developed Let’s Get Together© software and tools to increase children’s ability to manage and resolve their own daily conflicts.
When we became aware that many children we worked with were affected by incarceration, WinWin extended our work into corrections environments.
