Careers & Volunteers

Community Mediation Center of St. Mary’s County (CMSMC) offers community members a way to resolve disputes or have a difficult conversation with the help of trained, neutral volunteer mediators. A great benefit of mediation is that it allows participants to come to a mutual resolution instead of a decision handed down by a judge or arbitrator.

The generosity of our community is paramount in our ability to continue providing free services. We always need extra hands for community outreach events like dropping off brochures to businesses, doctor offices, churches, nail salons, hair salons, etc., around our community, promoting fundraisers like our LFT5K (Looking For Trouble 5K), office assistance, updating and posting on social media, and of course mediating. If you are interested in volunteering please contact us and tell us what you are interested in doing. Call us at 301-475-9118 or use the contact widget on the left!
