Final Report: “Responsible Youth: Engaging Young People and Community Members in Conflict Transformation & Social Change”

The participants gained enhanced skills and knowledge as they identified types of conflict and models for managing conflicts, mapped real-life case studies, and engaged in role plays that enhanced their mediation and conflict management skills. In addition, the training for trainers strengthened the capacity of young people in the de-escalation of peer/community conflicts and changed their behavior and practices towards adopting a peaceful resolution of conflicts in their life and community relations. The training helped young people change negative perceptions about the other with more openness to a dialogue of words and rational, thinking approaches to conflicts. The training empowers the participants to recognize how personal values and views influence behavior and identify conflict management styles. They are more able to analyze the needs of each party, develop skills to resolve conflicts in a flexible manner, develop positive influence techniques, and develop negotiating skills appropriate for a win-win solution.
