Staying Connected

You will find additional ways mediators can stay connected, such as our Volunteer Colloquia, Quarterly Happy Hours, Additional Training and Annual Recognition Event.

Jefferson County Mediation Services provides all new mediators with an orientation manual. Please refer to the manual when possible and contact us if you have additional questions.

Review the following information outlining the types of cases you may volunteer for.

  1. Community
  2. POCC
  3. Small Claims
  4. Division H


We will send email announcements about new cases available for assignment. These run the gamut from dog barking to child custody to workplace disputes. The email will include a description of the case(s) for which we are seeking volunteers. 

If you would like to volunteer for one of the announced cases, respond by email. Do not respond if you do not want the case. When you receive an assigned case, be sure to confirm receipt as directed in the case assignment email.
