The Atlantic Institute is dedicated to promoting peace and understanding through dialogue.

We pride ourselves on education initiatives like our Future Leaders of Dialogue program and our Annual Art and Essay Contest. These programs help inspire the youth of South Carolina to think peacefully and socially while growing their creative spirit and fostering self-confidence in their leadership abilities. We are always seeking Art and Essay judges, volunteers to help run events for students, and parents or educators who want to make a difference in students lives.
One of the cornerstones of the Atlantic Institute’s mission of peace is our Interfaith programming. We host an annual Tour of Faiths, highlight various religious centers throughout the year, explain the differences and similarities of different faiths, and bring the Abrahamic religions together for dialogue, dinner, and social initiatives. We are always in need of speakers, moderators, members of various faith centers, and seekers of peace to help aid us in making these events impactful.
South Carolina is a melting pot of cultures and backgrounds and we’re doing our part to highlight them all! As part of our slate of intercultural programming we host an annual Turkish Food Festival, host monthly Cuisine of Different Cultures and Cultural Creation demonstrations, and promote diversity through many of our events and programs. We are always in need of people of any culture or background to share their stories, crafts, music, or food!
