"Mediation has allowed me the opportunity to volunteer in my community even while managing the demands of family and work. I am able to mediate in the evenings and/or on weekends and have found mediation to be a great way to give back."
— LaShanna, Mediator

“ 'We all live under the same sky but we don’t all have the same horizon.' I often think of this quote when going into a mediation session. In each case participants are empowered to recognize the horizons of the other party and this helps them relate to each other and find areas of reconciliation."
— Janet, Mediator
"Being a mediator has given me the opportunity to be a better listener—to listen profoundly and respond intentionally rather than reacting or interjecting my own thoughts or story. That is one of the greatest gifts we can give to people who need to be heard and wish to find clarity."
— Dusty, Mediator and Trainer
Would you like to help people from all walks of life to bring about peaceful conflict resolution in our community? Then becoming a mediator may be for you.
The process of becoming a mediator with CMCC begins with Basic Mediation Training. It is offered every 18 months and includes: a 2-hour orientation; 40 hours of study in the theory and practice of mediation in the transformative framework; 2 case observations; 2 co-mediations with an experienced mediator; and a course and materials fee. Volunteers commit to performing 40 hours per year for two years providing mediations or engaged in other Center activities. Trained volunteer mediators provide mediations; help with events; and participate in workshops and trainings.
Currently, there are no Basic Mediation Training sessions scheduled for the Center. Please email CMCC to get your name put on the waiting list for training notification.
