Jason Spencer, (BA) is currently Mediation Program Coordinator at Community Justice Initiatives (CJI). Jason has completed the Certificate of Conflict Management and Mediation and has gone on to complete all the requirements for accreditation as a Family Mediator. Through living in community, Jason has discovered two common responses to conflict. Resilient people build consensus as they collaborate to solve the problem. While others compete, generating mistrust and dissolving relationships. A BA in Sociology from Wilfrid Laurier University and community development work with people of diverse backgrounds, complements his lived experience. Through CJI’s Mediation Services, Jason helps community members develop the skills they need to resolve conflict. Jason works to help people learn and grow together in order to reduce tensions and create healthier communities.
