Boulder County Sheriff’s Office seeking volunteer victim impact facilitators
Boulder County, Colo. - The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office is currently recruiting volunteer Victim Impact Facilitators who want to make a difference and believe that people can change. Work with the Jail’s Victim Impact classes to help inmates learn to recognize the impact of their behavior on others. Be part of a program that makes a difference.
We are accepting volunteer applications until January 30, 2019. Victim Impact Facilitator training will be held in February. New facilitators will be paired with an experienced facilitator until fully trained.
Victim Impact classes run for eight weeks, meeting once per week for two hours on Thursdays from 3:00 – 5:00 P.M. Additionally, two hours of preparation time, which includes reviewing inmate homework is required. All volunteers are asked to commit to joining the team for at least one year, attend bi-monthly meetings to debrief, review new policies and participate in in-service training.
Facilitators should be able to manage discussion and present opposing viewpoints. Facilitators must also be open and inviting yet able to establish firm boundaries and respectfully confront denials, minimization, justification and able to read class dynamics.
