JMP Community Mediator

JMP relies on community members to mediate housing disputes in their community.

This 40-hour training will equip participants to mediate landlord-tenant disputes as compensated mediators for JMP. Participants will learn about conflict dynamics and develop mediation skills in their own style to apply towards JMP eviction prevention mediation.


Participants will shadow and co-mediate with experienced JMP Mediators as they prepare to mediate housing disputes between landlords and tenants on their own. Mediation takes place virtually and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
