Volunteer Mediator

Save to Favorites


Recruiting Organization: Neighbor to Neighbor, Inc

Are you a peace builder? Then serve your community as a Volunteer Mediator with Neighbor to Neighbor!

Mediators serve as a neutral third party to guide people through a process of being heard and talking about ways to solve their disputes by creating win-win solutions. At Neighbor to Neighbor, our mediators help solve disputes everywhere from the neighborhood to the workplace. We also provide free training for volunteers who want to provide mediation in specialized areas such as:

  • In Small Claims and eviction (FED) Court before parties present their case to a judge
  • Manufactured and Marina Home Park issues
  • Parent-Teen Mediation
  • Landlord-Tenant Mediation
  • Victim-Offender (restorative justice) Mediation
  • Remote Mediation
  • (NEW!) Eviction Avoidance

Of course we can’t do all of this without our volunteers, so we need you!

Training Requirements:

To start volunteering as a mediator with Neighbor to Neighbor you do need a 32+ hour Basic Mediation Training. If you haven’t taken one elsewhere, we will be conducting a Basic Mediation Training in early September 2022 (dates TBD) which meets all standards for community mediators set by University of Oregon School of Law, Oregon Mediation Association, and the standards for Civil Mediation established by the Oregon Chief Justice order #05-028.

There is a cost, listed below, but we offer discounts for all volunteers and scholarships for bi-lingual volunteers. We are currently working on expanding the scholarships we can offer, but your employer may be able to cover your fee if you ask.

Standard Fee: $625

  • With 10% discount for 1 year volunteer commitment: $526.50
  • Active Volunteer Incentive: $300 refund after completion of 20 volunteer hours
  • Bilingual Scholarships (high need areas are Spanish, Russian, and ASL. However, other languages will be considered)

All specialized trainings are provided free of charge to volunteers.

We also have an apprenticeship program for new volunteers to receive valuable mentorship and feedback from experienced mediators!

Getting Started:

This is an ongoing volunteer need in Marion, Linn, and Benton Counties of Oregon. If you are interested in conflict resolution and want to join our team, fill out the form from the website link below we will reach out to you soon to provide more information! You can also email us if you have any questions.
