Last week we trained and welcomed our newest group of Peer Mediators. Southport High School’s Peer Mediators program is a group of trained juniors and seniors who help resolve conflict among their peers.  Students are nominated by staff members and attend a half-day training.  Peer Mediator training discusses student perception, bullying vs conflict, and peaceful conflict resolution strategies.  Students leave with resources to work through peer conflict.  When a conflict is turned over to the mediation program, two mediators work together to help the recommended students in need to solve their conflict in a peaceful environment.  We have had many successful mediations to date!
