Peer mediation programs continue to be one of the most widespread and important peer leadership programs in the country. They are an important part of comprehensive violence, bullying prevention and character education initiatives. Well-implemented peer mediation programs have proven effective at increasing safety and improving the climate for learning in schools, from elementary through high school. In peer mediation programs, trained students help other students to resolve their differences when a conflict is brewing or has already occurred.

Peer mediation recognizes that students can utilize conflict resolution practices and social skills to play a leadership role in increasing peace and reducing violence in their school. Student mediators, drawn from a cross-section of the student body, become positive leaders in the school, and their own self-esteem, confidence, and conflict resolution skills improve.

During the training, the students will spend time in the morning actively engaged in learning the principles, objectives, and personal skills needed in a mediation program.  The afternoon will allow time for students to practice their skills and become more comfortable in their leadership role as peer mediators in their schools. This training is experiential, fast paced, and entertaining.

Student Teams consist of 6-8 students grades 4-8 + 1 advisor.  Additional attendees will each be charge $15 each to cover the cost of food.
