The Teaching Negotiation Resource Center (TNRC) offers Workable Peace, a comprehensive training program for high school and college students who want to enhance their conflict management skills, but want to learn them in a context that also helps them master required curricula in world history, international relations, American history, ancient history and in specific regions of the world (i.e. the Middle East and Latin America). Workable Peace, developed by the not-for-profit Consensus Building Institute (CBI) includes extensive teacher training guides and related video background materials. TNRC also offers separate negotiation training materials unique suited to young adults. These have been tested extensively at the high school level in a number of countries.
