Peer Mediation

Peer Mediation is a problem-solving process in which students, known as Peer Mediators, assist other students in resolving non-physical disputes. Peer Mediators are specially chosen by school personnel and trained in a three-step process. This process clarifies the nature of the dispute and assists students in reaching a solution that is satisfactory to both parties. Students trained as Peer Mediators develop leadership skills, enhance their critical thinking skills, learn valuable communication skills and develop a proficiency in problem solving skills.
