Le besoin : quel problème tentez-vous de résoudre ?
Studies have found that safe, caring, participatory and responsive school climates tend to foster a greater attachment to school and provide the optimal foundation for social, emotional and academic learning for middle school and high school students. We hope to solve the issue of poor school climate (schools that are unresponsive to students social-emotional needs) through an intervention using empathy to engage youth and adults in a collaborative process to build peace and understanding among students.
La solution: quelle solution proposez-vous ? Soyez précis !
Studies show that schools which invest time in purposeful conflict resolution programs show improvement in academic achievement, reduction in time spent in discipline, financial cost savings as a result of fewer absences, and an overall improvement in school climate. Through a partnership between the Nashville Conflict Resolution Center and Metro Nashville Public Schools, we will address this through a youth-led conflict resolution program in which a team of 12-15 youth will annually be trained to mediate conflicts amongst students, teachers, and other members of their respective school community. The program engages all stakeholders of the school community in a process that focuses on relationships, safety, and social-emotional learning. Our belief is that a core group of empathetic students can help create a school climate that promotes physical/emotional safety, develops positive student/student and student/teacher relationships, and supports students social-emotional needs.
Le système : décrivez un exemple spécifique montrant de quelle façon votre initiative fonctionne ; indiquez vos principales activités.
We currently operate in 3 Metro Public High Schools. At one of our high schools, a group of 10 students, 1 teacher, and 1 administrator were identified last spring to participate in a 8-week experiential training led by seasoned mediators from our organization. Following the training, these students begin to advertise the opportunity to “mediate conflicts” for other members of the school. As students enter the school each day, a small dropbox allows you to drop a note inside if you have (or know of) a conflict with any members of the school that you’d like to address in a safe, private manner. Meanwhile, the group of “peer mediators” meet in a classroom once a week to reflect, share, and develop new learning. Youth and adults work together in a collaborative process and build relationships with each other and throughout the school.

Currently, there are no peer-led conflict resolution programs operating in Metro Nashville Public Schools. While other agencies focus on anti-bullying efforts and reducing violence, no current program utilizes the process of peer-led mediation while engaging all members of the school community and outside community partners. The absence of any ongoing peer-led mediation program may be our greatest challenge as we must work to convince our partners to make an investment in an under-utilized approach.

Jusqu'à ce jour, quels résultats a obtenu votre projet ?
In 2011, 41 youth from a Metro Nashville Public School, a local charter school and an after-school program for juveniles with substance abuse problems received training in conflict resolution & peer mediation through the Nashville Conflict Resolution Center’s youth program, “Planting Seeds.” Of the youth trained, 100% completed a written evaluation and 95% said that their listening, communication and problem-solving skills had improved and they were better able to manage conflict at school and home. In addition, 24 youth completed a written survey 1-3 months following training (59% of total youth trained) and reported that they regularly utilize mediation skills and would recommend the NCRC program to their peers.
Quelles sont vos prévisions en termes d'impact au cours des trois prochaines années?
The Planting Seeds program hopes to train and develop 200-240 youth mediators over the next 3 years in 8 local Metro Nashville Public High Schools to handle conflicts between peers, teachers and other members of the school community. We believe our impact will result in a greater number of students increasing their listening, communication and problem-solving skills, a reduction in student discipline, and raised capacity of partnering schools to mediate disputes among students.
Quels sont les obstacles qui risquent de freiner votre projet ? Comment pensez-vous les surmonter ?
Lack of funding to grow and sustain the project is the only major barrier. Planting Seeds is currently seeing success in each of the schools where it is active.

Founding Story: We want to hear about your "Aha!" moment. Share the story of where and when the founder(s) saw this solution's potential to change the world [125 words]
Nashville is a growing city for youth development opportunities that merges professional expertise of community members with school goals. As the success of NCRC's programs became more evident and the problem of negative social-emotional school climate continued to grow we felt this program was a perfect fit to help our schools succeed.
Quels sont vos différents partenariats ?
NCRC currently has partnerships in every school in which our program is active. In addition, NCRC partners with the local General Sessions and Juvenile Courts, the District Attorney's office, state and local government agencies addressing issues of discrimination in housing and employment, and numerous non-profit organizations providing an array of social services to residents in Metro Nashville. NCRC offers free / low-cost mediation services to all of its partners. In addition, NCRC provides affordable community mediation trainings and short conflict resolution workshops.
