Submitted by Dispute Resolution Center

October is Conflict Resolution Month.  You can help resolve conflict, promote civility and create peace in our community as a volunteer with the Dispute Resolution Center of Thurston County.

The DRC is actively seeking volunteers to help it achieve its vision of “a South Sound community that has and uses healthy and respectful conflict resolution skills”.

Volunteers can become trained as mediators and work directly with people in conflict, help people over the phone through the DRC’s Resource Line, or assist with community education and outreach efforts.
