APPRENTICESHIP: Once approved for apprenticeship, you will have the opportunity to observe at least two NCRC mediations and to co-mediate at least three times with seasoned volunteers. This provides you the opportunity to experience how our different programs run and practice your skills in real settings with constructive feedback.
MEDIATE: When you have successfully completed your apprenticeship, you can join our list of qualified NCRC Mediators, choosing what and when to mediate as your schedule allows.
NCRC schedules mediations across a range of programs Monday through Friday between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm, as well as on occasional Saturday mornings. If you have the training and the desire to mediate, we have plenty of opportunities for you!
