Abstract: This research examines an initiative of the Center for Conflict Resolution (CCR) in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. The CCR program, typical of many ‘cadre’ school mediation projects around the world, involved intensive training and follow-up support for teams of peer mediators and adult advisors at several urban elementary schools. Qualitative and quantitative data , analyzed in light of scholarly literature, indicate that such programs can significantly improve the average 8-11 year old students’ (not only the mediators’) understanding of and inclination to use nonviolent conflict resolution, and also their engagement and capacity to achieve in school. To develop equitable, effective, and sustainable programs required specific commitments from administrators and other school staff, which are outlined in the paper.
