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.
