The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Somerville Mediation Program's mission is to provide mediation, and alternative dispute resolution to the community free of charge using volunteer mediators.
Somerville Mediation Program
The Somerville Mediation Program mediates landlord/tenant, summary process, small claims, neighborhood conflicts and consumer disputes at the Somerville District Court and in the community. We are presently seeking trained mediators to add to our roster who are available during the day. These volunteers will have the opportunity to mediate in a court setting while being mentored by an experienced mediator. Potential volunteer mediators must have completed a 32-hour basic mediation training. Program coordinator will provide mentoring, instruction and training to enable the volunteer to obtain Trial Court certification
