Descrição

Note: Hiring for this position is contingent on a background check required.

The Restorative Practices Coordinator, under the supervision of the Mediation Matters Director of Restorative Programs, will be responsible for helping to coordinate the Mediation Matters Conflict Resolution Program primarily at multiple schools within the region and also with some community members.


Mediation Matters, Inc. was founded in 1979 as a non-profit, community-based organization to provide the skills and processes that help people handle conflict in a constructive way.  The Center specializes in providing mediation, restorative, and conflict resolution skills, training and consulting.  Offices are located in Albany, Saratoga Springs, and Schenectady.

Organizational Values:

We first ground our work in our key values as mediators, restorative justice practitioners, and facilitators:

Conflict as an Opportunity – We see conflict as a chance for better understanding, reflection, and growth, rather than a barrier.

Nonjudgement – We strive to conscientiously move beyond our assumptions of “right and wrong,” and make space for curiosity, multiple perspectives, and critical thinking.

Restorative Approach – We foster relationships and processes of healing and understanding, rather than approaching harm with transactional or punitive frameworks.

As an organization and as community-based centers, we also commit to:

Accountability – We aim to be fully and transparently accountable to all of our stakeholders, from the level of individual mediations to organizational priorities and decisions.

Adaptability and Equity – We commit to providing high-quality, contextualized services and activities to all clients, partners, volunteers, and participating communities, to make sure everyone is receiving what they need in order to fully participate.

Culture of Learning – We facilitate opportunities, policies, and practices that encourage all stakeholders to continuously acquire knowledge, reflect on their work, and make decisions based on participant feedback and needs.

Systemic Change – We work for long-term, transformative change to promote just and equitable frameworks within our social institutions and individual relationships.
