[edit] Description

Mediation helps people reach agreements, rebuild relationships, and find permanent solutions to their disputes. Mediation is a process that lets people speak for themselves and make their own decisions.

Community mediation provides a non-profit framework for assuring access to mediation services at the community level with control and responsibility for dispute resolution maintained in the community. Community mediation strives to:

  • 1. Train community members who reflect the community's diversity with regard to age, race, gender, ethnicity, income and education to serve as volunteer mediators;
  • 2. Provide mediation services at no cost or on a sliding scale;
  • 3. Hold mediations in neighborhoods where disputes occur;
  • 4. Schedule mediations at a time and place convenient to the participants;
  • 5. Encourage early use of mediation to prevent violence or to reduce the need for court intervention, as well as provide mediation at any stage in a dispute;
  • 6. Mediate community-based disputes that come from referral sources including self-referrals, police, courts, community organizations, civic groups, religious institutions, government agencies and others;
  • 7. Educate community members about conflict resolution and mediation;
  • 8. Maintain high quality mediators by providing intensive, skills-based training, apprenticeships, continuing education and ongoing evaluation of volunteer mediators;
  • 9. Work with the community in governing community mediation programs in a manner that is based on collaborative problem solving among staff, volunteers and community members;
  • 10. Provide mediation, education, and potentially other conflict resolution processes to community members who reflect the community's diversity with regard to age, race, gender, ethnicity, income, education, and geographic location.
