The city's Neighborhood Mediation Program has training openings for volunteers with a positive attitude, good communications skills and the ability to help people resolve problems. Other important attributes for applicants are a capacity to respect confidentiality and to remain impartial.
The free training for telephone intake work and conflict coaching is a required first step on the path to becoming a volunteer mediator with Neighborhood Mediation.
Training will be 9 a.m.-5 p.m., on Wednesday, Sept. 25, and Thursday, Sept. 26, at City Hall. Attendance at all sessions is mandatory. The classes will equip volunteers with the tools to assist neighbors in understanding their issues, exploring options and solving problems.
Eligible candidates must live, work or go to school in Bellevue, and must be available to work a two-hour weekly shift during business hours. Candidates will be interviewed to determine suitability for the program.
