Following our most recent Basic Mediation Training (BMT) course, four students signed up as new volunteer mediators for our organization. All are Bend-area residents with a variety of backgrounds to include one nonprofit Board member, an IT business manager, a college professor, and college student. Welcome all! Community Solutions will be providing new volunteers with an orientation and luncheon on Friday, April 14th to review our organization's mission, strategy, policies and more. At that time we'll discuss our mediation best practices and outline each new volunteer's 'term of service' preferences and goals. Special thanks to our new mediators and their volunteer spirit now and in the future!
