Youth Volunteer Mediators
Many of the disputes CDRC mediates involve families and conflicts between parents and teenage children. Considered part of our Family Talk program, these difficult conflicts can benefit greatly from co-mediation where trained teenage mediators participate as a member of a third-party mediation
To become a teen mediator, it's necessary to learn skills that will not only make youth into capable mediators, but will also help young participants build lifelong interpersonal skills in communication that strengthen confidence and self-awareness. Learning to mediate is often described as a transformative experience.
To learn these skills and become a teen mediator, you can attend a CDRC training in mediation. CDRC presents trainings periodically throughout the year. If you want to learn more, please contact us to express your interest and CDRC will be in touch in advance of our next training so that you can formally register before slots fill up. Or contact us with any questions in general.
CDRC values the power of youth mediation and will welcome your participation.
