As members of the YBCD mediation team, we pledge to uphold the YBCD Oath:

I promise to make every effort to empower each person to find their own voice, effectively communicate their needs, and successfully improve their relationship with those with whom they are in conflict.

I promise to honor the code of confidentiality and the integrity of Oberlin College's mediation program.

I commit myself to work with the Yeworkwha Belachew Center for Dialogue to further a socially just and peaceful community.
