Want to help create a safe, healthy community?
A Restorative Justice philosophy is at the heart of all of our programs. A distinctive of Restorative Justice is involving community members in a meaningful way to create opportunities for healing and resolution in situations of crime, conflict, and abuse.
Rather than over-professionalizing our important peace-building activities, CJI staff equip and support well-trained volunteers as they carry out our frontline work. CJI staff coordinate services while volunteers deliver them.
CJI values diversity and fosters inclusion in our community.
NOTE: Our volunteer screening process includes a criminal records check. Past involvement with the justice system does not necessarily exclude you from volunteering with CJI. Discuss any concerns with our Volunteer Coordinator.

During our 40+ year history, we have continuously responded to community needs by creatively, and innovatively applying restorative justice principles to new problems. We believe the only limit to the power of restorative justice is the capacity of the human heart to change and grow.
