Building Bridges: Community, Conversation, and Civility

June 6 @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm

JUNE 6, 2022   |   4:30-7:30pm   |   FREE ADMISSION

 

Join the JMC and the VBA for a dynamic and timely program to help elevate the tone of community discourse and dialogue. Using skills from the mediation field, this curriculum equips leaders and members of adult communities – from backyards to the public square – with tools designed to improve discussion, renew social trust, and engage in shared problem solving.

Participants in this three-hour, immersive program will engage in a shared community conversation around an assigned subject in hopes of building enough trust to begin problem solving. Presenters will offer their wisdom and methods gained from their many broad experiences in mediation and facilitation.
