Youth & Young Adult Conflict Resolution Workshops
Why Conflict Resolution?!
Conflict is unavoidable in life. But, with tools and support, we can resolve issues as they arise. The staff at REMILA are looking to pass conflict resolution skills to the next generation of problem solvers and young community leaders in New Orleans, LA. We know you have a lot going on in your life right now. Completing a conflict resolution workshop can help you feel better understood by your friends, family, and teachers. It’s time to trust in yourself that you can handle the good times and the really tough times too.
What can I expect from these conflict resolution workshops?
First, we create a space where what everyone has to share is important. Second, what you say will be kept confidential.
