International Mediators Community of Practice

Building a Community Mediation Program

During the IMCP’s first Peer-to-Peer Consultation, Julie Walton with Communities in Transition discussed the foundational pillars for starting a community mediation program: sustainability, participation, course content, apprenticeship, monitoring and evaluation and follow-up.

After Julie’s presentation, Amy Rymer, Friends Peace Teams, presented a case study on El Salvador where she would like to open a community mediation center and Jayne Nucete, University of Maryland, helped participants work through some of the challenges presented by Amy.
