ORGANIZATION: NATIONAL CONFLICT RESOLUTION CENTER

WHAT DOES A MEDIATOR DO?

Mediators are neutral third parties that oversee a proven 6 stage mediation process, guiding disputants through a dialogue to a voluntary resolution of a conflict.

WHAT KIND OF CONFLICTS ARE MEDIATED?

NCRC receives calls for this free service for all kinds of conflicts!

Typical inquiries include issues involving neighbors, tenants and landlords; family, friends, or roommates; parent and teens; consumers and merchants; and businesses.

One thing they all have in common is that they are voluntarily coming to the mediation table to make a good faith effort to talk it out with the Volunteer Mediator’s help!

WHEN AND WHERE ARE THE MEDIATIONS?

Mediations are occurring every week!

NCRC Case Coordinators work with the disputants to find a mutually acceptable day, time and place to have a mediation to resolve the conflict.

Mediations occur in person and virtually throughout San Diego County.Mediations occur during nearly every small claims court session.

Mediations can be scheduled in the morning, afternoon, evening, and even on weekends!

HOW ARE MEDIATORS ASSIGNED MEDIATIONS?

Volunteer Mediators can set up a standing day and time block of availability, for instance "EVERY OTHER MONDAY BETWEEN 9AM & 12PM". NCRC Case Coordinators will encourage disputants to mediate during that block.

Volunteer Mediators can also be "on call" for cases - cases coordinators will call you when a mediation opportunity arises a few days to 2 weeks in advance of the session.

WHAT KIND OF TRAINING DO MEDIATORS NEED?

All NCRC Volunteer Mediators need at least 32 hours of mediation training, preferably provided by NCRC’s Training Institute.
