Community Group Conference (CGC) Facilitator Training

This is a two-day, introductory restorative justice facilitator training. It introduces participants to restorative justice principles and skills needed to conduct a Community Group Conference, which is the RJ model we use at LCJP. A reading assignment will be given prior to the second day.

The Community Group Conference is a powerful restorative justice process which brings together offenders, victims, support people, families, police and community members in order to develop workable agreements that can lead to repair of harm, victim voice, offender learning and community building.

Participants are encouraged to volunteer with a restorative justice program subsequent to this training for on-going support and additional experience conducting conferences.

Experiential Training Emphasizes:

  • Role Plays
  • Small Group Interactions
  • Question and Answer Sessions
  • Coaching and Feedback

Training Content Includes:

  • Restorative Justice Principles
  • Pre-conferencing Techniques
  • Victim Awareness
  • Facilitating a Conference
  • Writing Agreements


Prerequisite: participation in a community group conference within the past year.

SVVSD employees and people making a minimum 1 year commitment to Volunteer with LCJP may attend this training for free. Please visit our Volunteer Program page (click here) for more information or contact Jessica Goldberg at or 303-776-1527.
