Here’s an invitation from IMI:
Dear Young Mediator,
Earlier this year we were in contact with you in regards to the Young Mediators Initiative (YMI), which was established with the intention of encouraging and assisting young mediators worldwide to generate experience and to create a network where young mediators can communicate with each other and local networks.
We aim to launch the YMI website in August, so would like to invite you to become part of the YM Initiative!
You can view the criteria for joining YMI in the attached document. If you would like to join, just send an email to YMImediation@IMImediation.org
and we will send you an email with your log in details.
Every young mediator will be able to build a profile in the YMI system so that mentors can have the opportunity to invite them to be assistants/observers in their mediations.
YMI aims to support young mediator groups – please feel free to share the information about YMI with your local groups that support young mediators and also with friends or colleagues who might be interested in hearing about YMI, both as young or experienced mediators.
We hope you will join YMI and be part of the mission to make mediation a recognised profession! Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at: YMImediation@IMImediation.org
