The Peace Team
Mid Shore Community Mediation Center trained five mediators to work specifically within the school-based programs throughout the 2016-2017 school year. Currently, Cambridge-South Dorchester High School, North Dorchester High School, and North Dorchester Middle School, and Mace’s Lane Middle School host Peace Teams 3 or more days each week. Our mediators work with students, teachers and parents to reduce violence and resolve conflict by providing a peaceful, collaborative problem-solving process. Students are referred for mediation services by school staff and frequently request Peace Team services themselves.
