    work together in a comfortable supportive environment to come up with parenting plans created not by the courts but by the people who know their children best their parents Our focus is always on developing plans that are in the child s best interests and because both parents have the opportunity to be heard and because it s their plan they are more likely to follow through This results in less stress now and in the future for children who usually have already been adversely impacted by the family s dissolution Our Peer Mediation Program trains student volunteers to assist in resolving disputes at local schools When I asked one Bozeman High School student a mediator since middle school what motivated him to volunteer he answered Mediation works It s more effective than other methods of discipline where they don t actually get to the problem Another high school mediator summed peer mediation up as a great way to communicate and solve problems with each other without adults In this day and age isn t this what we want for our children the sense that they know how to find peaceful solutions to conflict Because of the positive results we witness from peer mediation we would like to extend the reach of this program to other communities in particular those in low income areas CMC has worked with the Gallatin County Graduation Matters Committee for years where volunteers meet with students at risk of dropping out Each student receives individual help understanding the value of finishing high school acquiring skills for personal goal setting and learning how to identify obstacles to his or her success Sadly due to lack of funding this fall we had to turn down several requests to continue this important work in Gallatin Valley schools We all know the price paid by both the student and community when a student drops out CMC would like to continue this work to ensure students not only graduate but that they graduate with skills that can contribute to success in every facet of their lives Your tax deductible donation in support of our Graduation Resource Council would enable us to continue this critical program In short CMC s focus on kids has never been stronger Our message to this community s children You are not alone None of this would be possible without our volunteers More than 40 trained volunteers business owners parents teachers lawyers students from middle school to college and retirees dedicate their time talent and big hearts to make a difference for members of our community Some drive as much as three hours each way to apply their considerable training and knowledge to help people find peaceful solutions to conflicts The work we do at the Community Mediation Center impacts the lives of many people with whom we deal directly And we believe the effects also radiate out to their families schools and the community at large No wonder there s a national trend toward mediation
