Listening and Understanding Workshop

Saturday, November 13, 2010 - 10:30am - 12:00pm

The Youth Empowerment through Conflict Resolution Program will be hosting a Listening and Understanding workshop. Listening is very important in gaining understanding and being able to work together more peacefully.

This workshop is open to the public but is in preparation for our Facilitated Dialog with LGBTQ youth on December 4th at Coppin State University.

This Listening and Understanding workshop will use engaging activities to review good and poor listening skills, active listening, and empathy. From 11:30am to 12:00pm we will focus on issues facing LGBTQ youth.

Youth build community to combat the chaos

The summer of 2010, the Youth Empowerment through Conflict Resolution Program expanded its conflict resolution and mediation training to middle school students at the Higher Achievement Program’s 6 week summer learning program.  Mediation helped resolve conflicts not only between scholars, but between scholars and staff.  In 7/8 of the mediations, the situation was resolved.  None of the disputants needed further mediation.
