Mediators gain skills by participating in the program: communicating verbally and nonverbally, actively listening, analyzing problems, identifying common interests, and learning to develop a plan.
Peer mediators care about others, are serious about helping peers solve their problems, provide an opportunity for both sides to tell their story, listen carefully and respectfully, are sensitive to each child's feelings, and are patient and friendly.
