Amigos in Mediation

AIM for a positive campus!

The Amigos in Mediation (AIM) peer mediation training program teaches school faculty and students to resolve disputes and conflicts in a non-violent manner.


The AIM Program helps schools establish their own self-sustaining peer mediation programs designed to improve the conflict resolution skills of students, reduce the number of school disciplinary incidents, and create a more positive school environment.

AIM training is offered at no-cost to all TEA accredited schools located within Bexar County.

For more information, see the School Information & Resources page.
