Program Overview
Program Overview
The Mayo Medition group was founded over a decade ago by program coordinator Jeri Brown. The program began as the Mayo Conflict Managers and has continued to morph over the years under the names Conflict Resolution, and Mayo Conflict Mediators. Recently the group has assumed more responsibilities covering all aspects of personal and interpersonal problems prompting another name change to the Mayo Mediators. This change will contiune to progress as the mediators of 2013-14 will be the first to recieve training in peer support and advisement allowing mediators to act as sounding boards for students dealing with personal issues as well as conflicts. This training will also strength the relationship between the Mediaiton program and the Mayo High School Guidance office allowing more refferals to happen in both directions. 

Mayo Mediators come from all backgrounds and represent arguably the most diverse club at Mayo High School. On average twelve new members enter the program each year keeping the total number of mediators at roughly forty. Annually the program has upwards of three hundred student contacts (average of two per day) with disputants and other individuals who simply need a good listener. Most interactions occur in the CM (Conflict Mediation) room located at the bottom of door two (room 1-215). Student's often walk-in for mediaitons but referrals from administrators, other staff members, and peers are not uncommon.

Our doors are always open (except for when there is a mediation) please stop by for any reason. We also are begining to provide more online resources, feel free to check out the rest of our website.
