Six Rivers DRC volunteers are what keeps our agency going. From administrative tasks and board governance to offering mediation, facilitation, and restorative justice services, volunteers are the driving force behind Six Rivers’ work. If you want to join the Six Rivers community, there are many ways to get involved.
Six Rivers DRC is committed to providing learning opportunities and skill building mentorship to interns in exchange for the help they provide. Over the years, interns have been involved in providing and designing services, administrative tasks, outreach and communications, and more. Interns leave Six Rivers with experience with conflict resolution services, theory, and practice; an understanding of the administrative functions required to maintain a service oriented nonprofit; real world research, writing, and submission of grants; communication skills, not only as a conflict resolution practitioner, but also in a workplace and professional setting; Support and encouragement from Six Rivers staff; and a professional reference for any job applications submitted post-internship.
