What Is Peer Mediation?

Peer mediation is problem solving by youth with youth. It is a process by which two or more students involved in a dispute meet in a private, safe and confidential setting to work out problems with the assistance of a trained student mediator.

The Resolution Center has credentialed trainers to implement Peer Mediation into elementary, middle, and high schools.

Benefits of utilizing Peer Mediation in a school include:

  • Reduced staff time spent on discipline
  • Reduced suspension, expulsions and fights
  • Empowers students to learn to resolve disputes by themselves
