Last year, NCRC staff and volunteers provided nearly 650 mediations, helping people de-escalate conflict, communicate with one another, and craft a solution to a parenting, housing, or juvenile crisis that would otherwise lead to court action or worse. NCRC mediators provided over 1600 hours of professional, in-session mediation service free of charge to people who otherwise would have lacked access to this opportunity.

Additionally, NCRC provided conflict management education to over 300 people through various partnerships and provided training/mentorship to a cohort of about 50 mediators.

Volunteers Serve Nashville

We are proud to note that many of NCRC's volunteer mediators are undertaking extra training to serve as facilitators for the upcoming public event here in Nashville entitled "REAL Talk: A Forum About Race, Equity, and Leadership" sponsored by the Mayor's Office of Neighborhoods & Community Engagement.

This forum--an extraordinary opportunity for civic engagement--will be held at the Music City Center on September 10, hosted by the Mayor and including up to 1000 citizens. You may sign up to participate here: http://bit.ly/2bmtEy8
