Develop Communication Skills That Serve Your Community

Creative Mediation relies on the generous support of skilled volunteer mediators to provide access to justice and conflict resolution services for San Luis Obispo County residents. Volunteers complete extensive training to become Certified Community Mediators, and mediate primarily Small Claims Court and community disputes, including landlord/tenant, neighbor/neighbor, roommate/roommate, and small business conflicts. Our volunteer program offers the dual benefit of developing personal and professional communication skills while serving the community in a meaningful way.
