My name is Darius Hunt. For the last year I’ve been a Peer Mediator with AFSC’s Peer Mediation Program at Northwest Academy of Law in St. Louis.
At Peer Mediation, our goal is to decrease violence in our school. We preach to the younger generation that what they do has an impact on others. We help them come to an agreement when there’s been a conflict.
The school-to-prison pipeline is for some, at best, a phenomenon that could happen to a few young people in certain communities. For others, it’s just an academic idea. For still others, it doesn’t even exist.
But for James, Sarah, Natera, and many young people like them, it’s their reality.
AFSC is a Quaker organization devoted to service, development, and peace programs throughout the world. Our work is based on the belief in the worth of every person, and faith in the power of love to overcome violence and injustice. Learn more
