dc.description.abstract This report presents the findings of preliminary research into the perceptions of overall stakeholder satisfaction of eight Auckland secondary schools of the Leadership through Peer Mediation (LtPM) programme, a core programme of the Foundation for Peace Studies Aotearoa New Zealand (the Peace Foundation). The research was commissioned by the Peace Foundation with funding assistance from the Metro ITP Voucher Scheme, and was conducted in the second half of 2015. This research is an expression of the Peace Foundation’s commitment to regular programme evaluation and improvement. A core aim of the LtPM programme is to empower students as ‘ambassadors of social justice’. The programme trains students in the mediation processes and leadership skills needed to assist peers to resolve personal conflicts in a peaceful manner. The training covers issues such as personal responsibility, rapport building, and active, empathic communication. This research report offers a preliminary, qualitative assessment of the perceptions of LtPM on school cultures and student wellbeing. The report is unable to contend whether or not LtPM has had a significant impact on changes in the levels of bullying and the like, though anecdotes from participants and LtPM coordinators suggest it may have some impact on the ways students relate to one another.
