Mountain Mediation Services is offering its Community Mediation Training on May 24, 25, and 26th. In this 21-hour training, participants learn the mediation process and are equipped with the tools needed to effectively deal with conflict and develop productive resolution. You will learn practical skills that will help you resolve conflicts you might have at work, in your neighborhood or with family members.
The training is being held at the First Baptist Church of Sylva, 669 W. Main St. in downtown Sylva, NC. The number of participants is limited and space must be reserved by Wednesday, May 18, 2016. The tuition fee of $195 covers instruction plus manuals, handouts and refreshments.
The course meets the certification standards of the Mediation Network of North Carolina. Upon completion of the three-day course, those who wish may work toward becoming a Certified Mediator, and may receive up to a full refund of their tuition fee in exchange for volunteering.
Volunteer mediators become members of a two-person mediation team and resolve conflicts between individuals referred by our court system. This is a very rewarding process that lasts from one to two hours. The commitment, both in time and frequency, is strictly up to the volunteer. Volunteers may also choose to become involved with the agency’s conflict resolution program at our area middle schools or with family or business mediations. Volunteers care about the process and the results and see that they truly make a difference in people’s lives.
