The Young Mediators’ Initiative (YMI) was established to support young mediators and mediation advocates with finding opportunities to gain experience in the field of Mediation. 

It is intended as a platform where young mediators and mediation advocates can contact each other, share knowledge, get in touch with organizations and network with competent mediators and mediation advocates to gain experience through shadowing, assistantships, internships, co-mediations and mentoring programs. 

The Young Mediators’ Initiative is run by its members on a voluntary basis.   

Please explore the left side menu of this page to find out more about YMI.

We invite you to collaborate! To help develop the initiative, you are welcome to share your resources, contacts and knowledge for the benefit of Young Mediators and Mediation Advocates worldwide. All contributions, suggestions and inspirations can be sent to the YMI Team at:
