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
Other Student & Youth-Based Programs :
- School Truancy
- Special Education
- Juvenile Victim-Offender Mediation
- Restorative Justice Conferencing Program
- Annual Peer Mediation & Conflict Resolution Art Contest
