Become A Volunteer Mediator

The Dayton Mediation Center is a leader in facilitating the constructive engagement of conflict

The City of Dayton established the Dayton Mediation Center in 1987 in an effort to ease the impact of community conflicts on public resources. The Center has become a trusted resource as one of the oldest and most robust conflict intervention resources in the country for those wishing to engage conflict constructively.

The Dayton Mediation Center intervenes in more than 1,000 conflict situations annually. The Center’s services have been utilized by residents, neighborhood organizations, businesses, employers and employees, schools, law enforcement agencies and court systems.


Trained professional conflict intervention specialists are ready to help you

When people are challenged by conflict, communicating their needs, concerns and goals is difficult. People do not have a sense of being heard or understood. In addition, conflict can be emotional and cloud the situation making it difficult to address.

The Dayton Mediation Center offers intervention support that can help individuals effectively manage the negative, destructive, alienating and dehumanizing interactions that occur during conflict. Our intervention experts are skilled at supporting your decision making throughout the process as you address the conflict, giving you the opportunity to gain peace of mind.
