Once completed, the student will simply have their supervisor complete and sign the form (See Download below) and submit to your counselor for approval. Many scholarships and colleges look for extra-curricular activities in the college acceptance process. This LCVS program will be explained in letters of recommendation and resumes at the student's request. Lynn Classical High School is fortunate to have many Greater Lynn organizations that will take part in our volunteer program. Please see Mr. Hayward or Mrs. Glowik in the Guidance Office to sign up for these organizations. Download our Volutneer SignUp Form here.

Alyssa Baglieri | Peer Mediation

Your Photo Here A Quick Explanation of the Peer Mediation Program

What is mediation?
Mediation is the process of conflict resolution where disputants are guided by a neutral third party in discussion and resolution of a conflict. We use the co-mediation model, which uses two mediators who work hand-in-hand to create an atmosphere of trust and respect. The mediators help to reduce power differences and emotional volatility, allowing difficult issues to be calmly discussed and worked out. The goal of mediation is to have disputants agree to a solution that is not imposed on them from the outside, but rather come to through discussion and compromise.
In order for this to work, both parties must voluntarily agree to participate, as they cannot be forced to communicate and come to an agreement. Mediation is used for issues ranging from neighborhood disputes, financial interactions, workplace disputes, to family issues and divorce.

What is the purpose of mediation in a school setting?
The peer mediation program at Classical High is designed to help students learn how to work out conflicts on their own, with the help of trained student mediators. Mediators at Classical have had at least twenty hours of training, and are subject to re-trainings to keep working on their skills. With the use of mediation, conflicts are reduced within the classroom and school, and students avoid suspension and other consequences. Through placing the responsibility to resolve the issue on the students themselves, the students are invested in creating a workable solution. As a preventative tool for punitive or disciplinary action, mediation can help students to quickly resolve a problem in its early stages. Mediation can also be used to re-establish a relationship after a fight or conflict has erupted, allowing students to deal with the difficulties of re-entering the school environment and moving past the issue. Also, mediation can be used for situations beyond the scope of individual student-to-student conflicts. Any individuals or groups can be involved in mediation, including faculty, staff and students.

How does mediation work?
In a confidential, safe, and neutral atmosphere, the students are guided to open up in direct communication about their differences. With the help of the student mediators, students engage in a dialogue about the conflict and the potential outcomes of the situation. The beginning stages of mediation revolve around hearing both sides of the story. Mediators encourage both parties to share their version of events, looking for underlying causes and shared concerns. Next, the two parties are often split up and given private sessions with the mediators to allow them to open up about any other issues they may be uncomfortable sharing in a joint session. Throughout this
process, mediators look for common ground between the disputants, working to find a point from which to encourage a solution. When the disputants are brought back together, they are encouraged to understand the other side of the issue and to begin looking for possible resolutions themselves. After about an hour, the vast majority of disputants come to a workable resolution that they themselves have proposed. This agreement can be a written contract or a verbal pact. Your referrals to the mediation program are a big step in working to reduce the conflict seen at the school, and to keeping students out of further consequences.
