Conflict Manager Grant

Albany USD Conflict Manager ProgramManaging playground conflicts is an age-old challenge in schools. Student mediation is a proven and proactive way to address these challenges. A select group of students at each Albany elementary school take part in Conflict Manager training and learn “the art of peaceful resolution” in an effort headed by Deborah Brill. During lunch and recess times teams of Conflict Managers help other children resolve arguments or soothe hurt feelings by asking those involved in disputes to first share their stories, then help them come up with solutions. An AEF Sally Outis Block Grant provided the jackets to schools, each school site having a distinctive color.
