Peer Mediation And Skills Training (PMAST) is a registered charity providing skills to youth to deal with bullying and manage conflict for over 22 years. Our mission is to equip youth, families, and communities with the skills to manage conflict peacefully where they live, learn, work and play.
While we recognize the value of awareness campaigns and counseling services, we believe that to really make a difference we need to take a proactive approach and provide the skills to deal with conflict, bullying and violence; issues which affect their emotional and mental well being. We share practical skills to help participants reduce bullying and tension in their social environments while building respect, compassion, empathy, and resiliency.
PMAST programs go beyond acceptance and inclusiveness; we seek to encourage young people to embrace their differences and learn from the diversity of thought and experience each brings to the table. These programs focus on equipping youth with the tools to better communicate, manage conflict and advocate for themselves in situations where they may feel discriminated against. The skills we are providing are life skills that our youth take with them to change family dynamics for this and future generations.
PMAST delivers research-based programs which teach youth the practical communication and life skills to manage conflict. We use professional mediators and coaches to support learning in an experiential format in the classroom and we are in the process of converting our programs to online.
