AACR hosted the 20th Annual Youth Conference for 149 student peer mediators from around the state. Schools sent 26 adult coordinators to participate in concurrent breakout sessions, while students received introductory, intermediate or advanced training from experienced mediators andtrainers. A total of 21 volunteer trainers contributed to the conference’s success.
Many thanks to Youth Conference Chair, Sande Roberts. Ruth Lusby, with 20 continuous years serving the conference, continued to ensure it went smoothly. AACR’s Fundraising Chair, Scott Beemer, raised over $1800 to cover costs of the conference, and has been busy working on having a fully-underwritten conference next year.
