Our Volunteers are Saying...

It was immediately apparent what skilled professionals everyone was but more importantly, what kind and thoughtful people they all were. There is a warmth and sense of caring that everyone there possesses that you don’t always see in today’s world.
Linda Campbell,
Restorative Practices

Yes, The Conflict Center has impacted my life as well as the lives of my children and grandchildren. I became a Conflict Center volunteer, board member, educator and advocate. I have incorporated the lessons learned from The Conflict Center in my behaviors, bringing peace to my life and to my family members, friends and colleagues.

Conflict Resolution Month in Colorado

I found that TCC was even more special than I had been led to believe and I loved Reading for Peace. As they say, the rest is history. And yes, I did serve on the board – for 9 years.

We have many volunteer opportunities that each require different training and time commitment. Time commitments vary from once a year to weekly depending on your interests and availability.

Many of our classes take place during evening and weekend hours and we can always use volunteers at our evening and weekend events.. Also, a number of program evaluation and fund development tasks can be done during evening and weekend hours.

There are many possibilities depending on your interests want to work directly in programs or to play an administrative and supportive role. We would love to talk with you in more detail to find a good fit for both of us!

We have a number of active committees including Advocacy, Program Evaluation, Fund Development & Marketing. Let’s chat about your interests and availability.

We require all volunteers to complete a Volunteer Application and basic background check. Once you have completed this paperwork we can talk about the next steps, depending on your interests and availability.

When conflict happens in the workplace or people experience inappropriate or difficult behavior at work, relationships are damaged and productivity often suffers.
 
Workplaces that embrace Restorative Practices have the potential to create a safer, happier and more effective workplace for everyone. Restorative Practices can be used within the workplace both as a preventative measure and to address conflict when it does arise, enabling teams and individuals to work well together.

Restorative Practices can be an effective way to resolve workplace conflict. It involves:
  • bringing together all those affected by conflict
  • providing a safe environment for the expression of perspective
  • allowing participants to come to a shared understanding
  • identifying creative ways to deal with conflict
  • providing opportunities to rebuild damaged relationships and strengthen teams 

Restorative approaches can also be used proactively within the workplace to build strong, positive relationships. Staff meetings, for example, can be focused on building relationships and based around a foundation of mutual respect.
