Interested in becoming a volunteer mediator?
We hold trainings about once a year, depending on our caseload, and prioritize current volunteers. Our next training in the DC area will be held in 2021 (TBD). To apply for our training, please submit this application first to become a general volunteer, and then continue to our mediator application here:
We will check volunteer mediator applications and begin interviews 2-3 months before the scheduled training.
Community Mediation DC offers a 45-hour Inclusive Mediation training to community members at no cost, in exchange for committing to 8 volunteer hours per month over two years. These hours include observing mediations, co-mediating, supporting outreach activities, and administrative/organizational support. We currently only offer mediations in the Inclusive model, so this training is required for anyone interested in volunteering with this part of our work.
Anything else you would like us to know about you?
Community Mediation DC is primarily made up of an expanding group of volunteers. We will get back to you within one month, and please feel free to follow up with us sooner. Thank you!
