Youth Mediators in Schools (YMS)

YOUTH MEDIATORS IN SCHOOLS (YMS) teaches high school and middle school students a peaceful and productive approach to resolving conflict with others as students develop strong communication, leadership and decision making skills which promote an improved school climate. Since 2013, YMS has established peer mediation in fourteen schools in the Sacramento region and trained over 1900 youth mediators. 

This program offers a unique curriculum which includes art activities designed to train students in conflict resolution skills through role play, discussion and artistic expression. Students are trained in peer mediation techniques in coordination with school personnel.
