The E.U.P. Community Dispute Resolution Center is recruiting volunteer mediators for the class of 2018. 

Mediation is a voluntary process where two or more parties involved in a dispute use a neutral mediator to assist with looking for a resolution. Mediators require good communication skills, the ability to remain neutral, and a commitment to a collaborative approach to resolving conflict. No educational or occupational preference is required, only the ability to give of your time and talents and a 40 hour training course that we offer. 

If you would like information on becoming a mediator, please contact the Executive Director at (906) 253-9840. Or feel free to email us director@eupmediate.org.
