Community mediators work with our community to help provide a forum for dispute resolution at the earliest stage of conflict. Attend our next Community Mediation Class and build your key mediator skills; listen with intent, ask engaging questions, and de-escalation techniques. We ask applicants to commit to volunteering as community mediators in their neighborhoods, on community decision-making bodies (boards, associations, task forces, etc.), and at the Center.
Completion of this 14-hour training will prepare participants to engage with community mediation efforts. Completion of this training does not qualify one to mediate disputes ordered through the Courts. If you are interested in Court referred mediation and registering with the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution as a neutral, please apply for our next General Civil Mediation Training.
Our Center is a member of the National Association for Community Mediation (NAFCM), and one of eight community mediation centers currently providing virtual community mediation training in the United States. As a hub for sharing and engaging with community mediation centers, NAFCM supports peacebuilders in creating brave spaces and sharing innovative programs.
