Changing the Community
A new initiative was birthed when EMCC collaborated with the Community Mediation Centre (CMC) to conduct peer mediation workshops for youth. CMC was set up by the Ministry of Law essentially to help develop a more harmonious community where social conflicts can be resolved amicably through mediation.
Through this exciting initiative, EMCC is able to reach a wider population of youth, offering peer mediation workshops throughout Singapore secondary schools, and inspire them to take on the challenge of being peacemakers.
The workshop engages students in simulated disputes and dramatic stand-offs while their peers try out their newly learned skills to resolve interpersonal school conflicts. Students who have been through EMCC’s workshop have already successfully begun to implement their skills among their peers at school.
