Dispute Mediation and Training

APADRC has three program areas: Community and Intergroup Conflicts (CIC), Peace Makers & Mediators (PM2), and Conflict Resolution Training (CRT). CIC provides mediation services to the community in the areas of landlord/tenant, neighbor/neighbor, consumer/merchant, domestic/family, employer/employee, small claims. PM2 coordinates peer mediation programs in schools. Youth are trained to be peer mediators, and they handle all the cases which are referred by teachers, counselors, and other students. CRT trains youth and adults in conflict resolution, anger management, and facilitation skills.
