 Agape Community Center Presents:

Mediation Training

What is Mediation?

Mediation is an effective way of resolving disputes without the need to go to court. It involves an independent third party-a mediator-who helps both sides come to an agreement. The role of the mediator is to help parties reach a solution to their problem and to arrive at an outcome that both parties are happy to accept.

Do you want to be a Mediator in your neighborhood?

The Agape Community Center will be partnering with LaShawndra Vernon from the United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha County to host Mediation training.

When: Saturday August 8th 9:00am-12:00pm

Where: Agape Community Center

If you are interested in making front exterior repairs on your home and would like some ideas and inspiration, sign up for the next CDS Workshop on Tuesday June 9th from 6-8pm at HEDC (6161 N 64th St).
