Restorative Justice Opportunities

Do you have a sincere interest in justice? The Restorative Justice Mediation Program (RJMP) is looking for two different kinds of volunteers: victim offender dialogue facilitators and victim offender education group co-facilitators.

Victim Offender Dialogue Facilitators

These individuals facilitate dialogues between victim and offenders. Everyone is welcome to inquire. Training will take place Oct. 22-24.

For information, go to www.sdrjmp.org or contact Mary Acosta.

 Victim Offender Education Group Co-Facilitator

These individuals will co-facilitate a victim education curriculum with inmates. The position requires a special background in social work, therapy, or counseling individuals with mental health challenges, as volunteers will co-facilitate (with a seasoned facilitator) a 2-hour psycho-educational group session weekly. Volunteers must attend the institution’s orientation, as well as the 5-day VOEG Basic Facilitation Skills training and the 4-day Intensive Curriculum Implementation (both held in Palm Desert).  Scholarships for the training and lodging are available.  The first training is October 26-30. One–year volunteer commitment in exchange for the investment in training.

For information, contact Andrea Travers, D.Min, CADC III.

RJMP is an independent 501c3 nonprofit organization.  Volunteers help transform the lives of those impacted by incarceration, specifically through programming which develops new behaviors inspired by insight, accountability and compassion grounded in the philosophy of restorative justice. RJMP’s Victim Offender Education Group (VOEG) co-facilitators provide a rehabilitative process, using proven curriculum to incarcerated populations in San Diego’s jails, detention centers and prisons, breaking the cycle of incarceration and returning inmates to the community as productive citizens. Upon completion of the IPP/VOEG trainings, volunteers become certified facilitators.
