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.
NCRC will host a 12-hour Domestic Violence Training class, led by Ms. Robin Brown, on October 28 and 29, 2016. This class is highly recommended for all mediators, and is required for all Rule 31 Family mediators who wish to be listed as having "special training in domestic violence." More information here...
Volunteers Serve Nashville
We are proud to note that many of NCRC's volunteer mediators undertook extra training to serve as facilitators for the 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 example of successful civic engagement--was held at the Music City Center on September 10, hosted by the Mayor and including over 700 citizens.
