Inafa' Maolek is a non-profit organization on Guam dedicated to teaching and promoting conflict resolution. It was founded in 1982 by attorneys John Dierking, Charles Troutman, and Patrick Wolff in an effort to foster communication so that litigation could be avoided. After receiving training in conflict management, the small group of volunteers began mediating private and court-ordered cases.
Since then, Inafa' Maolek has branched into several areas. Aside from court and private mediations, we now conduct workshops, teach peer mediation, offer college courses, hold conferences, and numerous other activities that advance our mission of peace.
