RCHS Supports Peacebuilding initiatives in Hawaii
Inspired by one of our speakers a few a weeks ago, Jose Barzola, the Education Specialist from the Matsunaga Institute for Peace, our Club reached out and offered to support one of the local peacebuilding initiatives - the 34th Annual Peer Mediation Conference (PMC) “Adventures in Peer Mediation” which will be from April 7, 2021 to April 30, 2021.
This event is designed to attract anyone interested in peer mediation, peer mediators, youth, and adults that work with youth to attend. We hope to inspire our communities to explore the benefits of peer mediation. Join us and share about this event! (More detailed information is below).
Come learn about Peer Mediation programs throughout Hawai’i in our opening panel “The Adventure Begins” on Wednesday, April 7. Then join us for one or more of our 16 skill workshops from April 8 to April 29. Everytime you attend a skills workshop you obtain a digital raffle ticket for gift cards that will be raffled at the closing panel event. 
Finally, join us to celebrate the PMC closing panel “What’s Next! The Peer Mediation Adventure Continues” with alumni peer mediators to discuss the impact of peer mediation on their personal and professional lives. Raffles will be held at the closing for those in attendance. We will have gift cards in $25 and $50 increments to be raffled for Amazon, Mana Up, Red Lobster, Starbucks, and many more. Over $500 worth of gift cards to be raffled up. Be sure to attend the skills workshops to obtain one digital raffle ticket per skills workshop attended.
