What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Mediation

Mediation is a confidential and informal process in which a neutral third party--the mediator--helps people: 1) talk thorough their differences, 2) explore and negotiate options, and 3) craft agreements that are fair, realistic, and durable. Our professionally trained mediators take you through a process of neutral information gathering, identifying issues, and then coming up with possible solutions. The goal is to design custom resolutions for your specific situation.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Facilitation is a collaborative way to manage a group discussion to help the group identify and solve problems, make decisions, and complete tasks. Facilitation encourages a cooperative environment so that the group can fulfill its purpose as easily as possible. Facilitation creates a climate that invites creative thinking, protects individuals from criticism, and generates ideas so the group can reach its goals.

Population(s) Served
Adults

Our training programs foster collaboration and promote peaceful solutions in our community. From "Basic Mediation Training" to community workshops on topics such as active listening and meeting facilitation, we give you the tools you need to manage and resolve conflict, plus become a better negotiator and problem solver. These skills can be used in business and workplace settings; in schools and on teams; by boards of directors and community associations; at home and in interpersonal relationships; and more.
