ABOUT US


  WHAT WE DO

Kids Managing Conflict has been finding ways to bring dispute resolution tools to students since 2007, and will continue to support youth that want to resolve conflicts peacefully.  In just the last 10 years, KMC has been able to provide 41 California schools with $115,000 in grants.

Each grant provides funds to:

TRAIN students with the same skills that professional mediators use

CREATE a structure for an on-campus Peer Mediation program

PROVIDE assessment tools that highlight positive changes to their school environment, and to identify areas for new future growth.


APPLY FOR GRANTS

If you feel your school can benefit from having it’s own Peer Mediation program, we encourage you to apply for a grant this year, and begin the process of helping your school become better able to manage conflict. Applications can be submitted from MAY 1 — JUNE 30. Please book this page, and set a reminder on your calendar.



how does
peer mediation actually work?

Imagine two students get into some kind of verbal fight/conflict. Normally, this means adults step in, stop the argument, and sometimes even punish them.
Suppose one of their "peers" (fellow student) has been trained to use a dispute resolution process for people their own age.

Will our two students feel more understood, and less judged or punished, by the School Administrators, or one of their Peers with mediator skills?


WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

For all our First Year grant recipients, KMC is there to help them get their first peer mediators trained, and to establish their own program.

As one of our Second and Third Year recipients, the grant can be used for new trainings, and for program growth and sustainability.
