Peer mediators are selected by staff through a voting process each Spring. Peer Mediators are juniors and seniors. Peer Mediators are trained by a university school counseling students to help fellow peers come to a peaceful, non-violent resolution through a formal meeting process. They help assist Southport High School students who are struggling to work out their differences before it escalates. Peers who wish to peacefully resolve a conflict with another peer may be referred by a teacher, dean, counselor, or any adult at SHS to the peer mediation process.
