Our ACR Houston Peer Mediation Team, in collaboration with the Montgomery County DRC (DRC-MC), debuted its online peer mediation training, Our Peacebuilding Community, on June 22 & 29, 2020. Elaine Roberts, DRC-MC Executive Director, invited the ACR Houston Peer Mediation Team to provide peer mediation training to approximately 20 high school "rising" seniors from the Education for Tomorrow Alliance (EfTA) internship program. Our Peacebuilding Community was designed by Darcy Thompson, Gina Buckley and Kimberly Barahona. The interactive program was presented via the Zoom video conferencing platform. Sheryl Jackson-Matthews, Dr. Diana Pino and Karla West joined Pablo Flower, 2019 EfTA intern graduate, Lois Voth, Glenna Rodgers, and other volunteers from the DRC-MC; who shared important career information or facilitated the role play practices, sharing their experiences, insights and expertise. 

Corinne Coulter, EfTA Program Director, stated that the Our Peacebuilding Community program was very well done and she noted that the youngsters were engaged and readily consumed the training objectives. The feedback received from the interns was also very positive.

Thanks to the ACR Houston Board, the DRC-MC and our members for supporting the building of future peacemakers through our peer mediation training program.

Let us help build your peaceful community!
