Part 2: Community Impact and Double Discovery

This video spotlights two student volunteer organizations, Community Impact and Double Discovery Center.

The first program shown in the video is Peace by PEACE (Playful Explorations in Active Conflict-Resolution Education), in which Columbia students use games to teach conflict resolution skills to neighborhood fourth and fifth graders. This program is just one of dozens run by Community Impact, which serves more than 8,000 children and adults each year in the Harlem, Washington Heights, and Morningside Heights communities.

The Double Discovery Center at Columbia University brings low-income and first-generation college-bound New York City youth to Columbia’s campus to learn about colleges and careers, improve their academic work, and participate in personal development activities. The Center serves more than 1,000 young New Yorkers each year.
