Mediator Mentors is a university-public school partnership in which future teachers, counselors, social workers and school psychologists support the development of conflict resolution skills in school children. At California State University, Fresno, Dr. Pam Lane-Garon in the Kremen School of Education and Human Development directs the program with Karen DeVoogd, project Coordinator. Dr. Art Wint, coordinator of the Peace and Conflict Studies Program assists. Teachers and students in the public schools receive eight to 10 hours of communication and conflict resolution training and university students coach and mentor at lunch periods. More than 5,000 children and teachers have participated in the program.
The Mediator Mentors team openly shares their elementary school peer mediation student handbook so that others might benefit as well.
