03/06/2018 - Basic Mediation Training

ELLENSBURG: EAT, PLAY, STAY! - Wed, 2018-02-14 20:00
The Dispute Resolution Center’s next Basic Mediation Training will be March 6-7 and 13-15, 2018, in Yakima. Mediation is a cooperative way to resolve disputes effectively, confidentially, and out of court, a way where people in the midst of a conflict sit down together to discuss the issues and develop their own solutions. In this professional 40-hour training, you will learn and practice the skills required to become a neutral facilitative mediator in any setting. This is a great opportunity to develop communication and conflict resolution skills and cultivate nonviolent, collaborative dispute resolution in the community and in your personal life. With the current divisive atmosphere in the country, mediation is a great way to bring people together. Training Components include: active listening skills and techniques; negotiation; conflict theories and styles; acknowledgement; restating/reflecting/reframing ... and much more. Optional mediator certification is available through the DRC with additional training. The cost is $500 to Yakima & Kittitas County residents, $550 to all others. Limited scholarships may be available, particularly to those who are bilingual. Become a great listener and begin creating solutions through collaboration. Contact us today for more information or to sign up: Email Phone 509-453-8949 or 509-925-5123.

02/23/2018 - Showtime at Central

ELLENSBURG: EAT, PLAY, STAY! - Mon, 2018-02-12 20:00
Step on Stage, it's Showtime Wildcats! The CWU Black Student Union's Showtime at Central will be here soon. In honor of the famous amateur show from Harlem's Apollo Theatre, Showtime at Central aims to showcase Central talent while paying tribute to Showtime's history. This year's host, a comedian and CWU Alum, will be Quincy Jones. He's not only hilarious, he's dedicated to making his name known by recently accomplishing 1,000 sets in one year. Join contestants as they enjoy their three minutes of fame on the McConnell stage. Bring your boos and your cheers, because if an act doesn't impress the crowd within the first 30 seconds, all bets are off and they could be potentially "swept" off stage. The crowd will decide on the winner through their praise and applause at the end of the night, and in between performances will have the opportunity to answer questions on a variety of African American history. Showtime at Central is FREE and open to the public, so grab your pals and join us at 7 p.m. in McConnell Hall for this spectacular Central tradition. Showtime 101 Showtime at the Apollo: The original television debut of this talent show started in 1987. The Apollo Theatre is known as the place where stars are born and legends are made, including stars like Adam Sandler, N.W.A., and the Beastie Boys, just to name a few. The Apollo Theatre still continues to feature talent from all over the country today. Sandman: Howard Sims, acclaimed tap dancer and the original "sandman" for Showtime, would gently remove performers from the stage if the crowd was not impressed. This year, our student sandman may do any variety of things, so if you watch the show expect the unexpected! The Kiki: This position is named after Kiki Sheppard, the long-time co-hostess of Showtime. Our Kiki will be responsible for strolling across the stage with the 30 second card. 30 Second Rule: Performers have 30 seconds at the beginning of their performance to win over the crowd. When the Kiki enters on-stage, it is the crowd's responsibility to either cheer with delight or boo in displeasure to confirm their decision.
