Build your skills by volunteering with RJMP!
Most of the work at RJMP is performed by trained, experienced volunteers committed to helping those in need. They serve in a variety of functions – facilitating dialogues, leading inmate groups, participating in community panels, helping with our social media, and assisting in the office. We highly value all the dedicated work our volunteers contribute to the success our programs and invite all people with a passion for making a difference in the lives of San Diego County justice-involved youth, crime victims, jail inmates and school communities to volunteer. Creative self-starters are encouraged to get involved. An understanding of the demographics of the various communities of San Diego County is also very helpful. Bi-lingual volunteers are especially needed! Hay necesidad de facilitadores bilingues!
Our volunteers receive quality training. To volunteer as a facilitator of victim offender dialogue (VOD), you must complete the VOD 20-hour training, either with RJMP or another Victim-Offender Reconciliation/Conferencing program (must show proof of completion of program). Facilitating groups for the Restorative Justice Reentry Prep and Juvenile Hall programs require special training and at least one year’s commitment. If you are interested in helping with our office or social media, please send your interest request and resume to: email@example.com or click here to register your interest in office volunteering.
