MMC Volunteers 

Volunteers play a critical role in all areas of service provision at the Midlands Mediation Center (MMC).  Volunteer mediators are essential to the success of our mediation programs. MMC also benefits from the donated time and expertise of MMC Board and committee members, volunteer trainers, Americorps or community volunteers, and student interns.

We welcome the opportunity to engage new volunteers who are interested in providing general support to the Center and its day-to-day operations. Volunteers are also needed to assist with special events or projects.  About Volunteering
