The Western Justice Center Peer Mediation Invitational is turning 15!
Every year, hundreds of local elementary, middle, and high school students and educators come to Western Justice Center and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit to build their skills in conflict resolution as Peer Mediators. This free workshop is open to participants from Los Angeles County public, private and charter schools that have peer mediation programs and will take place February 27th and 28th this year.
Peer mediators are trained to help effectively manage conflicts among classmates in a peaceful and civil manner. These students prevent further conflicts and the need for disciplinary action, and clear the way for meaningful learning.
Each day of the invitational includes theater performances on mediation best practices, expert coaching by professional mediators, and networking for students and the educators who support them.
Peer Mediators are building positive school climates, and they deserve to be celebrated for their efforts. Join us in this banner 15th year to recognize these students and their contributions by sponsoring the Peer Mediation Invitational. Your gift will provide students with the quality event they deserve and expert training to strengthen their skills.
