Volunteer Trainings

Volunteer Training Opportunities

Every month, the Center hosts a two-hour professional development training for our volunteer mediators, also known as “in-services.” In-Services are complimentary to our volunteer mediators, interns, and Basic Mediation Training participants. Other guests may attend by advanced request only and there is a $10 charge.

These trainings are a great place to connect with fellow mediators. They are also a confidential and supportive place to bring up specific cases or mediator concerns. Our in-services include explorations of the skills, concepts, and professional standards of mediator conduct and at times presenters, panels, and handouts.
