SEEDS envisions a future in which all individuals, organizations and communities recognize conflict as an opportunity for positive growth – and have the skills and capacity to engage in effective dialogue and promote peaceful resolution of interpersonal and intergroup challenges and conflicts.
Toward this vision, SEEDS’ mission is to increase the capacity of individuals, groups, and organizations to build healthy relationships and to restore relationships in the face of conflict. We do this through mediation, facilitation, training, and coaching.
We develop programs, models, and competencies that help bridge cross-cultural and other differences. And we design our services to respond to the needs of the diverse communities we serve, reduce barriers to participation, and reach underserved communities
