Have you been inspired to give back to the community? Mediation is an opportunity to give back to the community. In order to mediate with one of these community organizations, you need to be trained in the art of mediation. Various organizations offer training programs throughout the year. The basic training for mediation is a 30 hour program and the family mediation training is a 40 hour program. If you are trained in one style of mediation you may opt to take a bridge training (a shorter training) to make up the additional hours needed to be trained in the other style. To find out more about volunteering as a mediator please contact the member organization with whom you would like to volunteer.
