Scholarship for Mediator Training / Volunteer

Save to Favorites

BILLINGS MEDIATION CENTER INC

In exchange for full-paid training in the Fundamentals of Mediation, the volunteer will pursue certification through our Conflict Resilience Project that supports Yellowstone County Justice Court, and commit to two years of volunteer mediation with Conflict Resilience Project as a certified mediator. Such volunteer commitment involves a minimum of two mediations per month (usually a Monday or Wednesday morning). Presently mediations are held via Zoom, but could transition back to in-person with Justice Court in Billings, Montana.

Mission Statement

Change citizens’ mindset about conflict and improve the opportunity for positive growth through conflict resilience.

Description

The Billings Mediation Center created the Conflict Resilience Program in October of 2018 and started working with the courts officially in June of 2019. The Conflict Resilience Program is an ongoing engagement with the local Justice Court.

Mediation services are also offered for all types of conflict and sliding-scale requests are considered for eligibility. Uniquely we offer an invitation process at no cost with two purposes in mind: 1) break the silence in communication; and 2) allow parties to make decisions about resolving the conflict.
