What is Peer Mediation?
Mediation is a PROCESS in which students facilitate discussions between
parties in conflict, helping the parties work together toward a solution
that is agreeable to all.
Why have a club?
Intermediate, we focus on giving back to our community. By creating a
Peer Mediation Club, we are able to meet regularly, create a "club"
atmosphere for our participants and help them gain ownership of the
process. We just thought it would be a great way to go!
