Volunteers are vital to the success of BCRC. With their help, people in the community find peaceful resolution. The volunteers gain something too, recognizing that giving back to the community by helping to resolve conflict is richly rewarding. Our diverse team of volunteers represent all walks of life experience and learn a tremendous amount about conflict and negotiation skills that have practical application in both personal and work life.
