Diversity in Mediation Scholarship
The WDRC is seeking bicultural and bilingual community members interested in building their skills in conflict management and mediation. Thanks to a grant from the Whatcom Community Foundation, scholarships are available now for our 6 hour Understanding Conflict Workshop ($75 value) and 40 hour Professional Mediation Training ($650 value).
Dual Expectations of Recipients: Scholarship recipients are expected to take the knowledge gained and apply it within their community and places of work, either formally or informally. We also hope that recipients of the Professional Mediation Training scholarships will continue on to our practicum program to become certified mediators and future volunteers for the WDRC. We are seeking individuals who share our interest of building constructive conflict management skills, and who want to help connect the WDRC to broader, underserved, sectors of the community while also building our community’s capacity to sustainably manage conflict.
