* 5. We are dedicated to increasing the diversity of our volunteer mediator pool.  Based on the current make-up of our mediator roster, we give priority to the following groups:
  • People of color
  • Young adults (under 45), minimum age is 18.
  • Low-income residents
  • Members of the LGBT community
  • People without a college degree
  • Those who live in public or section-8 housing
  • People who are formerly incarcerated or involved with the justice system
  • People who are from rural areas of Buncombe, Henderson, Transylvania and Polk Counties
  • Those who are fluent in both English and Spanish 

There are no educational or professional requirements to become a mediator.  While we do a criminal background check on accepted volunteers, having a prior conviction does not automatically exclude you from volunteering and may be a helpful perspective.

Please share how you fit into these diversity criteria.

Question Title

* 6. Mediation is non-judgmental, confidential and voluntary. We value the self-determination of participants and believe that people know best how to move forward in their own conflicts. Mediators don't tell people what to do, decide who is right or wrong, or push people towards agreements.  They never make suggestions, make rules about how communication happens during mediation, or give advice. Instead, they walk participants through a conflict resolution process so the participants can create their own solutions.

Tell us why you think being a volunteer mediator would be a good fit for you.
