Seeking computer-savvy folks comfortable with Excel and multi-tasking to act as technical hosts during online mediation sessions on the Zoom video-conferencing platform.CYS' restorative justice mediations provide diversion from the juvenile justice system, helping keep our youth in school and out of prison. As a mediation host, you will perform light technical duties associated with Zoom hosting, including inviting participants into a live session from a virtual waiting room, coordinating breakout rooms when required, managing a small number of online document signings, and observing elements of restorative justice mediations involving youth and families.
Due to COVID-19 we needed to move all our mediations online. The challenges of mediating in a virtual environment necessitated the involvement of technical hosts to support the trained, volunteer mediators who run the interpersonal component of the mediations. This unique volunteer opportunity enables you to play a central role providing a critical second chance to youth and their families, and bringing justice and healing to your community.

The mission of Centinela Youth Services (CYS) is to strengthen families and communities by empowering Los Angeles area youth (7-21 years of age) to peacefully resolve conflicts and challenges and to become successful and productive students and adults.
Our vision is to use the principles of Restorative Justice and Trauma-Informed Care to empower youth, families, and crime victims to become accountable, to heal and to realize their full potentials.
Centinela Youth Services (CYS), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit community-based organization, was founded in the Centinela Valley in 1975 to provide youth counseling; physical and mental health, academic, and developmental intervention; and juvenile crime prevention services. In the mid-90s, due to the strong outcomes achieved by the youth served, CYS services were expanded into many of Los Angeles County’s high-needs communities.
