Promoting Peace through Development, Education, and Leadership

The Atkinson Center is dedicated to participating in real-world exploration of the hidden issues that lay behind the poverty, violence, discrimination and hatred, and lack of access to educational and healthcare opportunities, for individuals and communities.

The Atkinson Center uses international volunteers, university graduate students, and staff from The GOD’S CHILD Project and ‘Institute for Trafficked, Exploited & Missing Persons’ to conduct relevant in-field analysis, inclusionary involvement with identified stakeholders, and professional research with peer discussions to review, develop, and co-implement socially-relevant action plan models, that create, teach, and maintain efficient, integrated development plans.

The overall goal of The Atkinson Center is to help relieve human suffering and social injustices in developing regions and nations, particularly those areas where social class or racial discrimination dominant.

The Atkinson Center is also an evolving nonprofit personal effort for its founder, Patrick Atkinson, to be a resource from which individuals and groups involved in social justice can be assisted in preventing violence against women and children, and using healthcare and education as a means of breaking individuals and communities out of poverty.

The Atkinson Center will be the repository for Patrick Atkinson’s writings and other intellectual properties, as well as his 8,000+ piece personal library and collection of manuscripts, documents, and other ephemera, primarily dealing with human rights, American slavery, Dakota Territory and American History topics.
