Thanks to our awesome volunteers, Solve-It! Community Mediation Service has a 98% success rate in fully resolving the issues that come to our mediation table! Our current pool of over 100 volunteers includes folks from a wide variety of career and interest backgrounds, and we would love to have you on board!

We are looking for people of all talents and skill-levels. Volunteer mediator requirements include:

  • Completion of a Basic Mediation training course. (You may take the bi-annual Solve-It! training or provide proof of completion of another, comparable course)
  • Completion of a 2.5-Hour Solve-It! Case Development training workshop.
  • Completion of a minimum of three observations of Solve-It! mediation sessions via the Solve-It! Volunteer Mentorship Program.
  • Commitment to a minimum of 4 hours per month of volunteer service (may include performing mediations, assisting with community outreach efforts, case development, program development, assistance with class instruction, etc.)
  • If you are interested in volunteering with our Peer Mediation training team, you must additionally have your fingerprints taken and a background check processed.

In exchange for your time and talents, we hope that you will experience many new and exciting things as part of our team. It is our goal that all volunteers will:

  • Develop higher level of comfort and mobility within intense conflict situations.
  • Enhance interpersonal communication skills
  • Strengthen personal work habits and skills through high individual responsibility within a team atmosphere.
  • Obtain greater awareness of personal strengths and areas for continuing growth within a structured environment that is geared toward learning.
