Advoz: Mediation & Restorative Practices
Our Mission is to transform conflict and build community through face-to-face dialogue programs.
Formed in 2017 from the merger of Center for Community Peacemaking (was LAVORP) and Conflict Resolution Services (was Lancaster Mediation Center).
Through time-tested dialogue methods, Advoz now equips our community to constructively handle conflicts, violence and crime. With 37+ years serving more than 800 youth and adults, businesses and schools each year, Advoz empowers all parties in conflict or crime, even victims and offenders, to find resolution and healing, restore broken relationships, and build stronger, safer communities.
Together, we can:
- Mediate resolution of challenging situations among families, neighbors, and institutions.
- Facilitate healing of youth and adults who may have either harmed or been harmed by violence and/or crime.
- Train teachers, counselors, and administrators in restorative justice practices as an inclusive approach to discipline and community building.
Your involvement is a long-term investment in the future of our community--in Lancaster County and beyond. Help us to equip our community partners with the communicative tools needed to promote a sustainable and prosperous commonwealth.
