Peer Mediation Training

 ”Resolving problems peacefully is a skill some people never master, even over the course a lifetime.  The students gained new insight into the consequences, negative and positive, associated with being a leader among their contemporaries. EAC’s Gregg Scheiner skillfully facilitated the learning process for these young men and women and the importance that they understand that while conflict is a natural part of their lives, the way we resolve those conflicts has the potential to impact our lives forever.” – Janice Miles, Executive Director, Concerned Citizen’s for Roslyn’s Youth
