VOLUNTEER TO BECOME A COMMUNITY MENTOR…

BECAUSE WE All DESERVE A SECOND CHANCE.

 

 

Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer for the Restorative Justice Project, joining our efforts to Engage Community, Build Lives & Restore Hope. As the value of our work gains recognition, our need for volunteers increases. 

 

What RJP mentors have said about our trainings and mentoring opportunities:
 

“I just wanted to tell you again how valuable an experience your training workshop was for me last week. You are both excellent presenters.  In truth, I was deeply affected both by the content of your presentations and the skill that you displayed in helping us internalize the value system embodied by the Restorative Justice Project.”

 

“Thank you for a wonderful experience. It was an emotional and inspiring couple of days in which I gained more knowledge about myself, met some interesting and wonderful people, and learned a lot about restorative justice and the people it serves.”

 

 “As a mentor, what has meant the most is finding that I fairly easily can have a positive effect in another person's life when they need it so badly.  What has surprised me the most is how much can be missing in another's life and how little they have to work with socially and emotionally.”
