Abbotsford Restorative Justice is looking for volunteers

Abbotsford Restorative Justice is looking for volunteers to join our team for our FALL 2020 intake. At this time we are specifically recruiting volunteers for our mentoring program to work alongside at-risk youth. This is a great and rewarding opportunity for students to gain valuable field experience in working with youth and their families who need support and who may be in conflict with the law. As well, students will learn skills in communication and conflict resolution which is an asset for those interested in social services careers.

Our Mentorship Program has remained strong during covid-19 as many of our youth are in strong need of connection and we are hoping to add more to our team as the need continues to grow.
