    The Mediation Center’s Peer Mediation program is a con�dential process for resolving con�icts. Students have the opportunity to talk through di�cult situations with the help of trained student

    mediators. Peer mediators do not take sides and keep all information con�dential. This process nurtures empathy and

    empowers students to develop their own solutions.

    • The Ground Rules: Do not interrupt; no name-calling or put downs; listen and be honest; agree to work toward solving the problem; keep what is said in mediation con�dential; follow through on your agreement.

    • Peer Mediators are students who are committed to making their school a peaceful place to learn. Before they can mediate, they receive intensive training in communication, problem-solving and con�ict-resolution skills.

    • Anyone interested in becoming a Peer Mediator can talk to their school counselor.
