Volunteer Negotiation Instructor

Negotiation Works is a non-profit organization that offers multi-week negotiation skills courses designed specifically for individuals returning to the community from prison, women experiencing homelessness, survivors of domestic violence, and other marginalized members of the community. Negotiation Works is currently open for applications for volunteer instructors for its fall 2021 courses. 

Negotiation Works will train you to use its exciting, interactive curriculum in an 8 hour training session (held remotely in multiple sessions, most likely in late July). The curriculum includes games, interactive activities, and role plays of real-life scenarios, including custody, landlord/tenant, and family probate disputes. All classes, taught by two co-instructors, take place at service provider locations in the community, such as transitional housing facilities, domestic violence shelters, and day programs, meet once a week for 1-1.5 hours, for an entire 4 to 8 week session, and are held during both daytime and evening hours. Classes are offered on-site where possible, and also offered remotely.

Prior teaching experience, familiarity with negotiation theories, and/or interest in working with underserved communities preferred. Priority will be given to applicants who are available to teach on-site in the metropolitan DC area. If interested in applying to join our team of dedicated volunteer instructors, please email melissa@negotiation-works.org, and we will send you an application. Deadline for applying for the fall 2021 cohort is June 18th.
