My goal is to work to setup a non-profit organization that will provide conflict resolution and mediation services to the communities of the Hi-Desert and possibly the Coachella Valley including: community mediation (neighbor, workplace, community and family - not including custody), introductory and advanced training in conflict mediation and group / process facilitation.
This Meetup is intended to begin the work of setting this organization up. I am looking for individuals who are interested in working on a volunteer basis who have either a background in conflict resolution and mediation or an interest in becoming a mediator. I will be inviting participation from existing organizations and agencies who work in the high desert.
I have a Graduate Certificate in Conflict Resolution and I have 20 years experience with Conflict Resolution non-profits, Small Claims Court, Business Bureaus and with Mediation Centers associated with academic institutions in Canada and the U.S.
I will be setting up an initial meeting for interested individuals and stakeholders before the end of February.
Please let me know if you have similar interests and goals!
