Volunteering

 

The Dispute Resolution Center of Montgomery County, Inc. is actively recruiting Volunteers!


VOLUNTEER MEDIATORS

The DRC accepts volunteer mediators on an as needed basis. If you are interested in serving as a volunteer mediator for the DRC-MC, please fill out the volunteer application and return it to the DRC-MC at (936) 538-8050 (fax) or to mediate@resolution-center.org Please be sure to include a copy of all mediation certificates which you have received to date. Once we have received your application and information, we will contact you about volunteer opportunities.

Please note that if you have taken our mediation training from an entity other than a Texas DRC, we will review your training to ensure that it meets required elements of mediation training. At this time, the DRC-MC does not accept volunteers holding mediation certificates from online training entities.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering to do mediations at the DRC-MC. If you have any questions, please contact us at (936) 760-6914, Ext. 3 or mediate@resolution-center.org
