The goal of these programs is to support the schools at whatever level they can adopt a mediation or conflict resolution program, to ensure the benefits to students and schools begin as quickly as possible, however informally. A representative of the sponsoring organization will meet the students at a sponsored school, be invited to the annual Peer Mediation Dinner, and be publicly recognized in Foundation materials.
The Coordinators’ Conference: $3000 for food, other amenities, and conference materials. Sponsors may choose to support just the luncheon for $1500.
