Get training and experience needed to become a certified restorative justice facilitator for criminal and other, schools, familial, conflict situations. The RJF program is designed to provide training as well as practical experience in the quickly growing world of restorative justice practices. Candidates who are interested in a wide variety of domains from legal and social services to political, psychological and communications work will gain valuable experience both interacting with the mainstream justice system as well as contributing to the development of an important socio-cultural shift in the daily practice of American justice.
On one hand, you will take the lead in the process of case intakes, participant preparation and the realization of the session backed by a fully developed, solid process and APADRC’s support staff.
On the other hand, you will be asked to choose a project domain from among the options, including outreach development, resource development, program administration and police relations. This will provide on-going work to compliment case work.
You will be asked to commit to a fixed bi-weekly schedule of office hours complimented by work time in the field.
The internship is open to all backgrounds; bilingual skills may be put to good use.
In addition to our office location, it is possible to work cases remotely within LA County, meet participants in their communities and hold circles in our service area of San Gabriel Valley.
