34th Peer Mediation Conference, Adventures in Peer Mediation
What's Next! The Peer Mediation Adventure Continues, Closing Panel

The Peer Mediation Conference has been bringing together youth peer mediators 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.

-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.

The Session
Join us to celebrate the conclusion of the Peer Mediation Conference with alumni peer mediators who will discuss how their training contributed to their current personal lives and in their professional careers.
