The ability to identify, navigate, and resolve conflict is a skill that can serve as a building block in the personal and professional development of any student; but like any skill set, conflict resolution needs to be taught, fostered, and exercised. That is why the George Milton Group has developed a series of educational programs aimed at introducing conflict resolution strategies and applications to students in a variety of settings. Our programs attempt to arm society’s future leaders and decision-makers with a valuable tool that can be utilized throughout their personal, educational, and professional development.

Pilot Class: Co-curricular problem solving
- Vision: Develop a program that identifies hyper-local issues and develops workable solutions within high schools and their surrounding communities.
- Mission: Like the George Milton Group’s Teen Think Tank, the Pilot Class looks to develop tomorrow’s problem solvers and leaders. However, instead of examining society’s ills, the Pilot Class focuses on creating a co-curricular activity that engages individuals within the school community in order to identify, research, and provide solutions to actual problems that are germane to them.
