Event description
Adventures in Peer Mediation | April 7 - April 30

About this Event

The Peer Mediation Conference has been bringing together youth peer mediators (ages 8 to 18 years old) for over thirty years. This is the first year the conference has gone virtual to connect peer mediators around Hawai’i and others aspiring to develop their own peer mediation program. The events are free and open to everyone who wants to learn more about peer mediation. We encourage youth and adults that work with youth to attend.

Terminology

  • Peer mediation is problem solving by youth with youth. It is a process by which two or more students involved in a dispute meet in a private, safe and confidential setting to work out problems with the assistance of a trained student mediator.
  • A mediator is a person who mediates—helps to settle a dispute or create agreement when there is conflict between two or more people or groups by acting as an intermediary or go-between for those parties. The act or process of mediating is called mediation.
  • Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution process wherein a neutral third party, the mediator, facilitates a discussion between the parties to promote the voluntary resolution of disputes.

Adventures in Peer Mediation | April 7 - April 30

34th Annual Peer Mediation Conference

"It's A Vibe: Nonverbal Communication" with Noelani Anderson | Skills Workshop

Learn about peer mediation skills.

The Session:

In this workshop we will explore the power of non-verbal communication by sharing experiences where the 'vibe' controlled the situation. We will use acting exercises and real life scenarios to both create and conquer the vibe of the room. You will leave this workshop with tangible tools to center your own 'vibe' before endeavoring a task, mediation or otherwise.
