October is Community Conflict Resolution Month.
The Dispute Resolution Center of Thurston County is actively seeking volunteers to help resolve conflict, promote civility and create peace in our community.
The DRC is a community-based, volunteer-powered non-profit organization dedicated to conflict resolution and prevention in the South Sound.
The DRC’s services have grown and evolved in response to new challenges, such as the new Eviction Resolution Program which provides mediation resources to facilitate negotiation between tenants and landlords who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Volunteers can become trained as mediators and work directly with people in conflict, both in-person and through the DRC’s new Online Dispute Resolution Services. Volunteers can also help people over the phone through the DRC’s Conflict Resolution Resource Line.
To learn more about volunteer opportunities and upcoming trainings, call 360/956-1155, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Dispute Resolution Center of Thurston County website.
