Volunteer with Estes Valley Restorative Justice Partnership:
Community Group Conference New Facilitator Training April 13-14

Estes Valley Restorative Justice Partnership (EVRJP) will offer a 2-day training for individuals interested in becoming facilitators for the Community Group Conference program on April 13-14. The training will take place each day from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in rooms 202/203 at Town Hall, 170 MacGregor Ave. Interested individuals must complete an application (by April 9) and background check.

Trainees will learn about the history of Restorative Justice, how the process is used within the legal system, and how it applies locally. Extensive information and training will be provided on the Community Group Conference model and how the principles of repair, reconciliation, reintegration, responsibility, restitution and respect are applied within the process.

Restorative Justice is widely used throughout the world and is common in Colorado at all levels of the justice system, in schools, and in the Colorado Department of Human Services. The Community Group Conference program is in its 16th year in Estes Park and is built around volunteers and community involvement. For more information or to request an application, please contact EVRJP Manager and Executive Director Melissa Westover at 970-577-3829 or restorativejustice@estes.org, or visit www.estes.org/restorativejustice.
