Maui Mediation to holds training

Maui Mediation Services will offer an online four-day basic mediation training Nov. 5, 6, 12 and 13.

“Conflicts are being seen all around us — in the workplace, our schools and among some families and neighbors. Intolerance and arguments leave many feeling disconnected and isolated. This training will not only connect residents but give them valuable conflict resolutions skills,” said Maui Mediation Services Executive Director Bevanne Bowers. “Those who complete the training will have the opportunity to become volunteer mediators at an exciting time, as we are assisting many landlords and tenants work out disputes and avoid evictions.”

The training is open to participants ages 18 and older. The registration fee is $350. Early-bird, student and senior discounts are available.

Space is limited. For more information or to register, call 244-5744 or visit www.mauimediation.org.
