For over 30 years, Yamhill County residents and community organizations have used the YCM program as a valuable resource to peacefully resolve conflict. Multiple city councils in Yamhill County support YCM because they recognize the value of resolving conflict in their communities. Yamhill County Commissioners have defined mediation as an “essential service.”
YCM offers mediation training and outreach at local schools and colleges, and sponsors a basic mediation training annually that meets State of Oregon mediator requirements.
YCM is a member of the Oregon Office for Community Dispute Resolution, Oregon Mediation Association, and the National Association for Community Mediation.
Through the dedicated services provided by trained volunteer mediators, mediation is offered at no or low cost to all residents of Tillamook and Yamhill Counties.
YCM Mission: Empowering people to make positive changes in the way they respond to conflict.
