On Monday June 21, 6th and 7th grade students at the Brooklyn School for Global Studies were honored for their accomplishments over the course of the year.
Among the honorees were nine students recognized for their participation in the middle school Peer Mediation program offered on site by the Crown Heights Community Mediation Center.
During the 2009-2010 school year, the Crown Heights Mediation Center operated a School Justice Center at the Brooklyn School for Global Studies, including Peer Mediation programming for middle school students.
Mediation Center staff provided two Peer Mediation trainings over the course of the year, and supervised weekly meetings where students practied mediation techniques and helped to support each other through personal and academic challenges.
Congratulations to the Global Studies middle school Peer Mediators!
