Peer mediation is not the same as conflict resolution.
Peer mediation is a conflict resolution process where students mediate conflict among their peers.
The Foundation’s peer mediation training discusses, among other things, how to implement and sustain a student-based program in your school, how to train students to be peer mediators and how mediation has been proven to reduce incidents of school violence. Each participant will receive our updated guide, The FAQs of Peer Mediation, applicable posters, and handouts that will aid them in developing a relevant peer mediation program for their school.
This program is FREE for educators. In person trainings are from 9am-3pm and offer 5.5 professional development credits. Virtual trainings are 3 hours at various times and offer 3 professional development credits. Please note that all programs are virtual until further notice. Please visit our Events Page to see our current offerings.
All in person trainings max out at 30 participants and virtual trainings at 60 participants. To be put on a wait list for a training, please email Jessica Taube at [email protected] with the following information: name; school name; date of the training you would like to attend; email address; and phone number.
