This summer we were joined by 18 amazing young people who completed their Youth Mediator Training! After four days of practice, study and fun, these Philadelphia teens are now trained to mediate disputes in school, at home, and in the community.

“The best part was when we got to work with each other to see how it would actually feel in a mediation”
