The MAC is proud to Partner with Colorado Community Mediation Organizations

The MAC is proud to partner with community mediation organizations throughout the state of Colorado. These organizations provide a invaluable opportunity for community members to use the mediation process in many cities in our state. Equally important is that these organizations are an excellent resource for mediators to get volunteer and paid experience through mediation observation, co-mediation and solo mediation practice. We encourage new mediators to explore organizations near you. If you are a mediation organization in Colorado and do not see your entity on this list, please reach out so that we may include you here.
