Upon joining the group, each new member will be assigned a volunteer mentor in their profession to oversee their training experience.

Cost: $250 payable upon joining JSCLG.  Additional cost of mediation training to be determined by training chosen by new member.  A comparable collaborative training program. approved by JSCLG Executive Board, can also be used in substitution for the Chip Rose training Program.  If this is done, the member will only be required to complete the JSCLG Mentorship Program for $100 and 8 hours of a mediation training of their choosing at their expense.
