On the first Thursday of every month ACR-GNY and the CUNY Dispute Resolution Consortium co-sponsor a breakfast event to promote education and dialogue to advance the field of dispute resolution.

Our Next Speaker

This month's Roundtable speaker, Meridith Gould, will talk about why she believes conflict resolution programs implemented in schools, after-school programs and community centers are neither appropriate nor effective in transforming the lives of many urban/low income youth.

She will also discuss the challenges that surface when organizations use mass produced conflict resolution and empowerment programs that are not relevant to the students they serve.

Additionally, she will discuss how youth workers/educators can create programs for youth that are effective, fun and sustainable. She will share her “Empowering Youth: Student Success Model” that addresses the whole child and meets the needs of youth and their families in these communities.
