Vital Village Network is excited to offer the 6th Annual Social Justice Mediation Institute (SJMI) cost-free to selected applicants. Mediation is a conflict resolution process that can help one navigate disagreements, improve communication, and appreciate different points of view. The Social Justice Mediation Institute is a 40-hour training where participants learn mediation skills to reduce conflict—addressing power dynamics, privilege, and identities—at home, in their neighborhood, with co-workers, and beyond. Graduates receive a certificate and utilize their new skills after training by completing a 6-month service-learning pathway (average 8hrs/month) with the Social Justice Mediation Program.
