What our clients say:
"Peer Advocates Training and Consulting has worked with City of Oakland by delivering vastly impactful communication trainings for our employees. From De-Fusing Difficult Interactions, to Effective Communications, to Managing Difficult Interactions – our employees learned tools to become better and more effective communicators within their teams and while serving the Oakland community. The instructor, Hilary Roberts, exuded passion and positive energy in her courses and created an amazing learning environment. Her commitment as an Oaklander to her local community is evident in the wonderful work she has done with our employees."
Citywide Training Coordinator -- The City of Oakland, CA
“As a member of an action research team at Teachers College, Columbia University working with a New York City-based organization that offers housing, employment, education, mental health services, and other programs to formerly incarcerated women and men, Peer Advocates Training and Consulting consulted with us on how to best utilize the organization’s meeting time to develop a more effective program to serve these clients. Their dedication to social justice issues combined with their ability to synthesize, paraphrase and reframe complex, sensitive information made Peer Advocates Training and Consulting an exceptional partner in furthering the impact of our team’s work.”
The International Center for Cooperation and Conflict Resolution -- Teachers College of Columbia University
“ We had heard wonderful things about Peer Advocates Training and Consulting’s work as Conflict Mediators and Restorative Justice practitioners, and found all the praise to be true. We utilized their services to resolve a complicated problem in our organization, and they were thorough, sensitive to our personnel dynamics, and very professional throughout all the steps in the process. Should a conflict like this arise again, we will surely use their services!”
