Volunteer Negotiation Instructor

Save to Favorites


  • 45 people are interested

Negotiation Works is seeking volunteer negotiation instructors to teach an exciting, interactive negotiation curriculum for women experiencing homelessness, survivors of domestic violence, and people recently released from prison. We are currently seeking instructor applications for classes scheduled for the second half of 2021, which will occur both in-person (in the Washington, DC area) and over Zoom. We will train you to teach the Negotiation Works curriculum, which includes games, activities, and role plays, and, for classes that will take place remotely, we will train you on how to teach over Zoom. Prior teaching experience strongly preferred, and interest in working with under-served communities and familiarity with negotiation theories are a plus.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact us, and we will send you an application form. Find out more information about Negotiation Works at https://www.negotiation-works.org.

Mission Statement

The mission of Negotiation Works is to empower people from marginalized communities with tools to resolve conflicts, advocate for themselves and others, and build more stable lives. The vision of Negotiation Works is to foster stronger, more resilient communities. When the members of a community have the tools to advocate for themselves and negotiate with each other, they are better able to achieve shared goals, create lasting relationships, and improve the stability of the community as a whole.


The core services of Negotiation Works are multi-week negotiation classes designed specifically for women experiencing homelessness, survivors of domestic violence, and people recently released from prison. Volunteer instructors teach the classes at local community service providers.

Negotiation Works will train you to use its exciting, interactive curriculum, which includes games, activities, and role plays. All classes, taught by two co-instructors, take place at service provider locations in the community, such as transitional housing facilities, domestic violence shelters, and day programs. Classes take place once a week for 1-1.5 hours, and are held on weekdays during both workday and evening hours.
