A Restorative Facilitator can fill one of many roles. Through our client referral process, our volunteers may facilitate: the Community Accountability Panel, Community Justice Forum, or Victim Offender Conferencing.
A panel consists of two volunteers who have participated in our facilitator training program. From here, you will play the role of a Lead Facilitator or Co-Facilitator. Each position plays a different role in guiding the dialogue surrounding the criminal or harmful behavior, as well as the Resolution Agreement that focuses on repairing the harm. An additional panel member, the Mentor, guides the client’s progress through the completion of the Resolution Agreement. We believe that connection is the beginning of any individual’s success and it all starts in this process.
