paxUnited: The National Mediation Center


Positive Action Center

A high percentage of students who are unable to successfully integrate into the social setting of the school will be suspended, expelled or dropping out at a crucial time period during which they could have been helped. PAC (Positive Action Center) provides early intervention for these students before they have made the decision to fail. paxUnited uses innovative techniques to reach students, removed from classes because of minor rule infractions, with early intervention in their self destructive behaviors. This behavior modification program centers on actions to be taken by the student him/herself, on that student's realization that s/he can change the situation in his/her life. The program results in significant increases in student self-responsibility, fewer suspensions and expulsions, lower drop out rate, improved school climate and increased academic success.
