Peer Mediation in Schools

We are helping with the implementation of a peer mediation program for schools. At this time, we are working with Pojoaque Valley High School, where PartySmart volunteers are assisting professional mediation trainers Debra Oliver (Common Ground Mediation Services) and Kathleen Oweegon (Bridges of Peace), school staff, and students. Although the number of cases mediated up to now is still very small, even the awareness, availablity, and education about the program among students and staff has very quickly demonstrated positive effects. Peacemaking has already become integrated into the school culture.
