Volunteers work with youth offenders in a restorative justice process to help them take responsibility, repair harm, and re-integrate back into their community. Volunteers act as a community representative or facilitator/co-facilitator in a group circle with other volunteers, the youth, a victim or victim surrogate, and family members. There are three stages of the restorative justice process at Weld County Restorative Justice: 1) pre-conference, 2) conference circle, and 3) re-integration meeting. Volunteers are assigned specific cases or circles by a restorative justice program coordinator (RESTORE, 21 or None, and Circle Conferences) and participate in each stage of the process for continuity purposes. Participation usually requires 2-8 hours per month of commitment. Most assignments are scheduled at the availability of volunteers, so flexibility is provided.
