WANT TO VOLUNTEER WITH THE TEXOMA DRC?

You’ve come to the right place! Volunteers are the backbone of any non-profit organization! The Texoma Dispute Resolution Center has several volunteer opportunities available for those who want to give back to the Lake Texoma area in a very unique way. All of our Mediators, Conflict Coaches and Trainers volunteer their time and skills so we are able to provide quality, low-cost or free Dispute Resolution services and training.

Others who choose not to volunteer as Mediators, Conflict Coaches or Trainers can assist the Texoma Dispute Resolution Center with general office work, answering phones, greeting clients and visitors, conducting presentations and training, planning or staffing fundraising and other special events, distributing flyers and brochures and a variety of other options.

We are also interested in partnering with local colleges and universities to give students opportunities to complete internships or required public service hours.
