A Self Help Instructional Guide To Mediation
We have committed our efforts into three major arrears: organizational development, empowering the powerless, and youth development. We have also committed some of our time to train and provide our published training manuals for under-served, disadvantaged populations; grass-root organizations; individuals; and youth and organizations that work with youth.
We have Racism, Biases, Stereotypes, Prejudices, Unintentional Racism/Prejudices, and Mediating Biases.
Empowering the Powerless:
At the other end of the scale, we provide training to grass-root organizations and individuals in topics concerning empowerment (taking power) and the organizational skills needed by under-served and disadvantaged communities seeking to participate in the decision-making processes within their communities: communication, situation/problem-solving, conflict resolution/mediation, negotiations, public speaking, effective meetings, planning and organizing, and leadership. We prepare them to effectively organize and strategize. These populations are typically in high crime, high violence, and/or low income communities.
Train youth and youth workers with material designed . We have trained youth in schools, community centers, churches, drill teams, residential facilities, gangs, jails, and prisons.
