Volunteer with LCJP
Volunteers are the heart of our organization. Longmont Community Justice Partnership operates with a strong organizational commitment to volunteers. We require a commitment of at least 4 hours of training to begin volunteering. Read about volunteer contributions to LCJP in our 2015 Year End Reports!
The benefits of volunteering with LCJP include:
· Free training - Volunteers train in Restorative Practices and Restorative Justice for FREE at LCJP. We do this to cultivate a restorative community, to increase the number of practitioners in the field of Restorative Justice, and to honor the commitment volunteers make to LCJP.
· Experience - learning happens on-the-job as a volunteer, meaning you will receive continual evaluation and coaching while working with LCJP's clients and other volunteers and staff.
There are several different ways to volunteer with Longmont Community Justice Partnership. These include being a community member in an RJ process, facilitating RJ processes, bilingual interpretation, administrative assistance, event planning, community outreach, fundraising and more!
Please begin by completing these two steps:
1. Complete the Volunteer Application (below). Once received please allow 1-4 weeks for staff to contact you to schedule a volunteer interview.
2. Join us for Restorative Practices Orientation and Community Member Training. These two evening trainings are required and you must attend Orientation before Community Member Training. The training fees are waived for people who intend to volunteer. The upcoming trainings are listed here below. To have the fee waived, choose the option, "I am an LCJP Volunteer," when registering. You may attend these sessions in advance of the volunteer interview.
