 Celebrating 24 years of service!

Your contributions, large and small, cash and in-kind, current and planned giving, support the vital activities of Northern Virginia Mediation Service (NVMS).  Every year our mediators, trainers, facilitators, volunteers, staff and Board together help more than 2,000 individuals successfully manage conflicts and learn critical skills.

This year we are celebrating the growth and success of our Restorative Justice (RJ) program in aiding local youth to be accountable and repair harm they have caused.  NVMS partners with two local school districts, one juvenile court and other public agencies to expand RJ availability and accessibility to youth, families and victims in a variety of local settings.  NVMS ensures that the services provided adhere to best practices for the most effective outcomes and promotes evaluation and research with our partners.  The NVMS RJ program has addressed more than 150 youth conflicts involving school discipline and minor criminal activities, serving more than 250 participants in RJ conferences and circles since its inception in 2007.

Please help us build programs like Restorative Justice and expand our partnerships in the interests of our local communities by making a contribution to Northern Virginia Mediation Service.

For more information on the progress of our programs see our 2012 Annual Report
