Northwest Mediation Center relies on the generosity of its volunteers for office assistance, IT support, marketing and promotion, public relations, teaching classes, mediation and more. 

All volunteer mediators complete, at minimum, a 40-hour, Basic Mediation Training course which is an extensive practicum and a rigorous evaluation. Mediators of family matters have received an additional 20-hour Family Mediation Training, and additional practicum activities.


Mediators are assigned on a rotating basis.  Many volunteer mediators have additional expertise in particular areas and can be called upon to mediate specific kinds of disputes. 

If you are interested in supporting our mission to promote peaceful problem-solving as a volunteer, please contact us at (509) 456-0103 or email
