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 and youth. At California State University, Fresno, Karen DeVoogd directs the project, with the assistance of Coordinator, Christina Cassinerio-Wilson and Project Originator, Dr. Pam Lane-Garon in the Kremen School of Education and Human Development (KSOEHD). 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 8,000 children and teachers have participated in the program.
