Most services are provided by our diverse pool of volunteer mediators who complete a minimum of 30 hours of basic mediation training, fulfill the requirements outlined in our apprenticeship process, and participate in continuing education related to mediation. Many mediators have also completed additional trainings which provide them with the skills necessary to mediate specialized cases.
We are part of the Community Dispute Resolution Centers Program that provides services throughout the state. We are also members of the New York State Dispute Resolution Association (NYSDRA), the National Association of Community Mediators, and the Association for Conflict Resolution.
