To protect health and slow the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, all spring mediator training courses have been cancelled. Please visit our Training Schedule page and see what’s on the tarmac for the fall season to help you hone your mediation skills and become certified in Virginia. We look forward to connecting with you! Until then, stay well.
We are pleased and thankful to announce the Center has received a $5,000 grant in support of our training programs. This is the third grant we have received from the Bama Works Fund since late 2015, and we are grateful for the continued support!
Many thanks to the thoughtful, generous donors who responded to MCC’s Fall Appeal. Your support helps the Center continue its conflict resolution activities in the community. We wish you the best for the New Year!
