Approach to Practice / Form of Mediation

The program provides information about its training and mediation services to interested individuals and groups. To schedule a mediation, a parent and/or youth should call and provide brief information about their needs and when all parties to the mediation have been identified a mediation session can be scheduled. Day and evening appointments are available.


The sessions are led by staff or volunteer mediators. All mediators have completed a 30-hour Basic Mediation and a Youth and Family Mediation training. Staff and volunteer mediators have mediation experience from mediating for the program and/or have experience mediating in other settings. Teen volunteer mediators have mediation experience from working with peer mediation programs in their schools. A top priority of the program is to offer effective and skilled mediation services.

Fee Information

Sliding scale from $5 to $75, the first session is free.
