Every year, the Mediation Center is lucky enough to have dedicated people join our team as full time volunteers through the Center for Court Innovation’s Juvenile Justice Americorps Program, and AVODAH: The Jewish Service Corps.
This year we had a fantastic team of two Americorps members and two Avodah corps members. Pete Martin focused on YO S.O.S. and worked with the artists for Arts to End Violence; Toluwalashe Davies ran our Neighbor Services and organized the Kingston Avenue Festival and the Movie Nights; Ariana Siegel was our Special Projects Coordinator and helped with coordinating volunteers, the S.O.S. Clergy Action Network, and our blog. Halfway through the year, we were lucky enough to have Aaron Dorfman join the team and assist with the S.O.S. program activities.
