Scholarship Application: Bilingual Mediator
We need bilingual-bicultural people to volunteer as mediators with our Parent-Teen Mediation Program, Community Mediation, Small Claims Court and Training/Workshops Program. We provide parent-teen mediations to help families talk about the challenges and conflicts they are facing in their family and support them in identifying constructive solutions they can all agree on. Mediators facilitate 3-hour mediations with teens and parent or guardians. As our program grows, we need more bilingual and bicultural mediators to better serve our Spanish speaking families. We hope that is you!
