Restorative Youth Court in Savannah-Chatham County
The Mediation Center of the Coastal Empire is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 1986 to serve our community. We support people from all walks of life who are trying to resolve their conflicts as easily and painlessly as possible through mediation instead of taking the issue to court. In addition to our mediation services, we teach conflict resolution skills to children in the community through our three Youth Programs: Peer Mediation, Community Conferencing, and BRAVE - Building Relationships and Voicing Emotions. Our Family Law Resource Center provides assistance to underrepresented citizens in navigating the court system and completing paperwork.
We rely on volunteers, donations, and grant funding to maintain and build on the programs we have developed over the years.
The mission of our Center is to harness the power of qualified volunteers, facilitate the process of citizens proactively managing conflict, provide alternatives methods to litigation, and increase access to justice.
