Why I Serve in Mediator Mentors
In 2013, as part of my education at Fresno State and as part of my core belief system, I volunteered to serve in Fresno State's Mediator Mentor Program and continue to serve as a technology consultant and trainer to this day.
This program is one of my most cherished life experiences. Ever.
About Mediator Mentors
The Mediator Mentors Project at Fresno State is a university-public school partnership in which future teachers, counselors, social workers and school psychologists support the development of conflict resolution skills in school children. At California State University, Fresno, Dr. Negin Tahvildary in the College of Arts and Humanities directs the program. Teachers and students in the public schools receive 10-12 hours of communication and conflict resolution training and university students coach and mentor at lunch periods in elementary school or fifth period in middle school. More than 7,000 children and teachers have participated in the program!
