Peer Mediation


          Peer Mediation is a program that offers a way to resolve conflicts peacefully by discussing the problem, with the help of a third, neutral party (the Peer Mediator).  Mediation is available to all MVB students, and anyone can request mediation by completing a referral form.  Referrals can be found in Room 135C’s information stand.  Peer Mediation is a valid way to resolve a conflict in a mature way using various communication skills.  The students having the conflict are the ones who decide how they want to resolve it peacefully. 

 Students interested in becoming Peer Mediators must request this elective class from their Guidance Counselors.  Peer Mediation is taken annually with Negotiation (one course per semester).  Mediation training develops active listening skills, communication skills, and critical thinking and leadership skills.
