Get Involved

Here are the ways you can “get involved” at Community Boards:

Membership

We encourage people interested in supporting our mission and our work to become members. Click here for more information about our Membership Program.

Mediation

If you would like to become one of our volunteer Community Mediators, you must take The Basics of Mediation training. We provide a limited number of scholarships to help us maintain the diversity of our mediator pool. Click here for information about The Basics of Mediation.
