LIHU‘E — Kauai Economic Opportunity, Inc. (KEO) is offering a training to become a mediator. The training will be held virtually from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 19, 20, 26 and 27.
The KEO Mediation Program has been serving the Kauai community for 38 years providing quality and accessible dispute resolution services and training.
Mediation is a confidential process where neutral mediators assist opposing parties to negotiate mutually acceptable solutions to their conflicts often avoiding costly court proceedings. Mediation assists in a variety of disputes such as family, court referrals, business, landlord/tenant, neighbor and other conflicts.
Trained mediators are community volunteers. After the training, the trainees may continue with the KEO mediation certification process by enrolling in its apprenticeship program which requires the trainees to work with experienced mediators for 10 cases within 12 months to become a KEO certified mediator.
There is a nominal fee will be charged for those committed to volunteer as a mediator for KEO.
For registration and application, please contact KEO Mediation Program at 245-4077, extension 234 or e-mail email@example.com.
