Our volunteers are highly skilled, dependable, spirited, and generous . Volunteers are the cornerstone of our organization and their dedication, energy and commitment are vital to the work we do.
As a collective, it is important that our volunteers reflect the diversity of our community (ie. with respect to ethnic origin, income level, education level, gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, etc.) and also demonstrate understanding of local cultures and social justice issues.
Thank you to all our volunteers who help us celebrate and promote restorative justice in our community.
