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.
