Volunteers Needed for Restorative Justice

Volunteer – Restorative Justice Facilitators

Nelson Police Department Restorative Justice (NPDRJ) is a community-based program that facilitates dialogue in the aftermath of crime and other harmful behaviour. Our program seeks to empower participants to share their experiences and to explore collaboratively ways to repair the harm. NPDRJ facilitators work to design a restorative response that meets the needs of all participants by providing victims with the opportunity to express how the incident has impacted them, helping offenders understand the impact of their actions and empowering them to take responsibility for the harm caused. They create value by strengthening mutual understanding to build consensus for a meaningful, reasonable, and fair resolution.

We are currently recruiting dedicated volunteers for the position of Restorative Justice Facilitator. Because of the seriousness and sensitive nature of the work we do, we are very discerning about which applicants we select as volunteers for the program. We cannot guarantee that everyone who applies will be accepted and we request your understanding if you are not selected to participate in the training.
