Peer Mediation Training & Support

Designed for middle or high school students interested in mediating conflicts between their peers throughout the school year. With support from staff, pairs of students provide a confidential process for student disputants to discuss conflict and ideally come to a mutually beneficial solution. For example in one academic year the Peer Mediator in one school helped peers work through differences in more than 75 cases.

  • Mediation intake, process and agreement forms

  • Additional, specialized training as needed
