The Mediation Center of the Coastal Empire (TMC) needs volunteers to provide support for our mediations. The Mediation Center is a nonprofit. Our mission is to help citizens resolve disputes. We accomplish our mission by providing mediation, restorative justice, family law, and parenting classes. Currently, we have 90+ volunteer mediators that help citizens facilitate conversations, identify issues, brainstorm solutions, and resolve conflict.
Due to COVID-19, there is a very high demand for virtual mediation. As a result, our mediators need volunteers in a support staff role to help with mediation and host the Zoom platform, move citizens to breakout rooms, send documents through Adobe Sign, and complete agreement forms.
We are looking for highly motivated volunteers, have some experience with technology and Zoom (this is a plus, but not required), are detail-oriented, and desire to help others and learn.
We provide a 1-hour training and have also created videos and other resources to learn this volunteer role. Technologies and software used include a PC or Mac, Zoom, Adobe Sign, Google Workspace, Microsoft Office, PDF tool. Mediations are scheduled in the morning and afternoon and generally last 1-3 hours. In addition, we schedule around 6 General Civil mediations per day, so there is a great deal of flexibility to work with your schedule. If you'd be able to volunteer with us in this capacity, we would love to hear from you, and we'll inform you of upcoming Mediation Support training dates.

The mission of the Mediation Center is to harness the power of qualified volunteers, to facilitate the process of citizens proactively managing conflict, and to provide alternatives to litigation and increase access to justice. Our organization values include inclusiveness, teamwork, accountability, and integrity.
For thirty years, the Mediation Center of the Coastal Empire has helped the Savannah community resolve conflict through different services and educational programs. As the Neighbor to Neighbor Mediation Center, we incorporated February 27, 1986 and changed our name to The Mediation Center of the Coastal Empire, Inc., in September of 2001. Over the last twenty years, the Mediation Center has trained over 200 volunteer mediators, conducted over 8,000 mediations and facilitated nearly five thousand settlements. Our goals are to provide and promote within the community methods other than litigation for settling disputes, which alternatives (including but not limited to mediation) shall be confidential, inexpensive, prompt and readily accessible to everyone; to maintain a trained, qualified and competent staff to provide these alternative methods and to conduct a program of continuing training and other means of quality assurance; and to provide opportunities for training in alternative dispute resolution to schools, other agencies, and or individuals, in order to enhance these skills throughout the community. We have 150+ volunteers and provide services in-person and virtually. Current programs include mediation, mediation training, co-parenting classes, youth programs, community conferencing, and community conversations.
This is a Virtual Opportunity with no fixed address.
