The Mediation Center currently enlists a roster of 35 mediators. All our mediators are volunteers from Northumberland, Snyder and Union counties. Once mediators complete 40 hours of basic instruction, they will apprentice with experienced mediators. After observing several mediation sessions, trainees will be scheduled to co-mediate with senior members while working to gain experience.
Our more senior mediators have upwards of two years experience and have completed additional classwork for advanced mediation.
The Center trains new volunteers on a regular basis. Instruction is provided free of charge with the expectation that after training, you will volunteer for a minimum of two mediations per month for two years. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer mediator, please use the contact information at the bottom of the page.
