Volunteer:

We are always looking for dedicated individuals who are willing to donate their time and become active participants in making Rutland County a safer place! All volunteers must be able to pass a background check and may be asked to undergo training. You can volunteer in the following capacities:

  • Restorative Panel Volunteer: This is an opportunity for you to serve as a community representation on restorative panels. During these panels, you will represent community interest in crime prevention and highlight the harm crime causes our community. Panels consist of devoted volunteers, the participant, and the program case manager (who will facilitate the panel and guide discussion). The goal of these panels is to allow the participant to take responsibility for his/her actions and outline tasks necessary to repair the harm done and prevent re-offense.
  •  Administrative Support: Volunteers can also work more behind-the-scenes as administrative support. The responsibilities of this position may vary greatly from week-to-week depending on the needs of the agency. The position will primarily consist of multifaceted general office support, such as managing reception.

Intern & Work Study Positions:

We are proud to host students and support them in gaining experience in restorative justice. We offer unpaid internship positions to all students and work study positions through Castleton University. We offer flexible schedules and the chance to work hands-on with clients and stakeholders in our community. Responsibilities will be flexible based on your experience, the needs of the agency, and your interests!

This is the perfect opportunity for students in the following fields: criminal justice, psychology, criminology, sociology, and other social sciences!
