Restorative Justice Facilitator Volunteers Needed

Applications Due March 21

Boulder County, Colo. - The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office is seeking volunteers to be Restorative Justice Facilitators.

Key Points:

  • Join Us and Make a Difference: We seek people who are passionate about strengthening our community. If you're ready to make a positive impact, we want to talk to you.
  • What You Will Do: As a restorative justice facilitator, you'll help victims, offenders, and the community come together to find solutions and heal.
  • No Experience Needed: Don't worry if you've never done anything like this before. We'll provide the training you need to succeed.
  • Time Commitment: Required training sessions held on May 4, 11, 17, and 18, from 9:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m. The other volunteer times are flexible.
  • How to Apply: Ready to get started? Fill out an application by March 21, 2024.

Ideal applicants are people looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity and who are over 18-years-old. The program is especially in need of volunteers who represent the diversity in our community. No prior experience is needed to volunteer. Training is provided.

Law enforcement officers refer juveniles and adults to restorative justice for misdemeanor and felony cases. Instead of issuing a ticket or making an arrest, the case is assigned to volunteer facilitators. The people affected by crime (victim, offender, community, and law enforcement) take part in a facilitated conference.

This process supports victims and the community by giving them a voice in how the harm will be repaired. It also supports offenders to take responsibility for their actions to repair the harm they caused.

If interested, please submit a volunteer application no later than noon on March 21, 2024. Applicants will have a criminal history check, interview, and reference checks.

If you are accepted as a volunteer, required training is being held on May 4, 11, 17, and 18, from 9:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

Volunteers will attend a monthly team meeting the second Monday of the month from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The hours for the conferences and other meetings are flexible.
