Volunteers needed as mediation program

The Kingman/Cerbat Justice Court is looking for volunteers to act as a mediator for the justice court.

Mediators are trained and qualified to work with individuals and groups to help settle disputes out of the courtroom.

Disputes could involve between tenant and landlords, neighborhood problems, family disputes, larceny related cases, disputes between employee and employer, civil and small claim cases, or environmental and zoning issues.

A free dispute resolution training workshop to be part of the mediator staff will be held at the Mediation Center from 9 a.m.

to 5 p.m.

Jan.

28, 29, and 30.

Bonnie Kleiman, Alternative Dispute Resolution coordinator and mediator trainer for Mohave County Superior Court will head the workshop.

No formal education or experience is required to become a volunteer on the mediator staff.

Those interested should have strong communication skills, management skills, committed to confidentiality and be available one half day a week.

Justices Larry Imus and John Taylor encourage adults, especially mature adults, to be part of this successful program, which helps put people in a mutually beneficial situation.

Applicants must be at least 18 years old.

Applicants must also fill out appropriate paperwork and attend an interview with the ADR clerk prior to Jan.

23.
