YMI Application

Join YMI and apply today

By registering with YMI, you can develop your own Young Mediator or Young Mediation Advocate profile on the IMI website. Your completed profile will be searchable by other YMI members, and by logged-in experienced mentors who may have opportunities for assistantships or mentorships. You will only be able to log in after your application has been approved.

Fields with a * must be completed prior to submitting the form.  Once you submit, your application will be reviewed.  Once it is approved, you will be able to login and update your profile further.  This means that you do not need to fill in all of the below at this time, though the more information you provide, the more likely it is that your application will be approved.

Ensure that you indicate the number of hours of your completed mediation training.  

Please ensure any web addresses include the http:// part of the address.  Contact [email protected] should you have any queries.
