it takes a village

The Anne Arundel Conflict Resolution Center (AACRC) began in 1993 when a group of local citizens met to discuss violence and create a community-based solution. Today, the AACRC offers mediation, facilitation, and community conferencing services to individuals and groups in conflict. These services are free of charge to the residents of Anne Arundel County. We also offer training and workshops in mediation, anger management, and other conflict resolution processes.

Staff and Board

AACRC currently operates with a combination of full-time and contract staff members, AmeriCorps members, and interns. Additionally, AACRC is supported largely by our Board of Directors, Volunteer mediators and office volunteers. Our Board of Directors is comprised of 11 to 15 individuals, making up four standing committees. The Board is integral to our operations. The members provide management and financial expertise, as well as help with program development and implementation. In addition to the volunteer assistance from the Board, we benefit from the efforts of committee volunteers, office volunteers, and a roster of more than 70 trained volunteer mediators.
