CRC continues to find ways to apply conflict resolution to our county’s needs. Here you will find information about our latest ideas and projects in development. These are areas in which your donation would be especially helpful.
The goal of the CRC Community Ambassador Program is to educate people and increase general awareness in the community around mediation and other means by which people can resolve their disputes positively and peacefully.
CRC Community Ambassadors go out to neighborhood and youth groups, churches, schools, professional and business associations, nonprofit agencies, and many other places and put on educational programs, including lively presentations, mini-workshops, and skits, to provide tips on how people can communicate and resolve their own conflicts and how to access CRC’ free or low-cost services when needed.
CRC Community Ambassadors can work individually or in teams. They can either choose to adopt a particular neighborhood, school, or group to serve as a primary liaison for CRC programs, or serve as an Ambassador at-Large, responding to requests that come in throughout the community.
CRC’ educational programs vary in length from 15 minutes to 90 minutes, depending on audience and available time. They can be scheduled during the daytime, evening, and weekends.
Volunteers in CRC’ Community Ambassador Program will be given a solid orientation on how to put together educational programs, and will initially be paired with more experienced volunteers on educational programs.
