Mediator Training

We offer trainings to assist both the beginning mediators and experienced mediators who volunteer with us.

For our volunteers, we just held a 2-hour Advanced Mediation Training addressing “Tough Moments in Mediation,” with Attorney and Mediator-Trainer Zena Zumeta instructing our team.

Check our News & Events tab for any upcoming trainings we will be offering.
