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. 

Groups of twelve to sixteen participants 

Ages 12-17 and 18-24 

Mixed-gender groups 

8 hours total 

We'll go over together: 

  • How have you dealt with conflict in your life? How has it served you? What would you do differently? 

  • What creates conflict between people? What makes it better? 

  • Is conflict a bad thing? Is conflict a good thing? 

  • How your confidence shows up under pressure?
