Peace cannot be kept by force: it can only be achieved by understanding”

Young Community Mediators is an online course that you can complete in a flexible way while you plan the set-up of equipping young people with the knowledge and skills to become peer mediators, empowering the youth of society to play a greater role in addressing conflict in the community around them thus helping to create a brighter future. It was written by experts who are passionate about mediation and the area of alternative dispute resolution. It is designed to create a new and effective model for encouraging young people, community leaders and educators to get involved with peer mediation, providing training and support within a community environment; one that provides access to vocational education for key target groups but also leads to broader economic innovation and revitalisation. Because it was written by mediation experts, we believe makes it an incredibly intriguing and insightful course, one that will hopefully encourage you to pursue and get involved with mediation within your community.
