The JAMS Foundation/ACR Initiative for Students and Youth provides grant funding for conflict prevention and dispute resolution programs for K-12 students and for adults working with youth populations in ways that directly transfer CRE skills from adults to youth.
The JAMS Foundation is currently providing grant support for the following initiatives:
1 - Online Peer Mediation Platform
$38,500 per year for two years to fund the development and launch of a comprehensive online peer mediation website, enabling children aged 10-18 to learn about, participate, receive mentoring in, and share their experiences with peer mediation.
Please Note: Virtual Mediation Lab provides the online mediation know-how for this project.
2 - Conflict Resolution Education for Children of Incarcerated Parents
Sponsored by the Good Shepherd Mediation Program in Philadelphia in collaboration with state and local, prison administrators, juvenile justice advocates and child welfare organizations, this $50,000 grant supports the development of a unique program providing conflict resolution education to children of parents who are currently in prison or returning home after a period of incarceration.
