The North Shore Restorative Justice Society builds capacity and connectivity within the North Shore community to prevent and respond to violence, conflict, and harm. Our two main activities are a police diversion program, the Restorative Response program (RRP), and a youth resilience-building program, the Restorative Justice in Education Initiative (RJEI). Through the RRP we meet with victims and offenders of crime and provide an alternative process to the criminal justice system that focuses on dialogue, reparation, and healing. Through the RJEI, we facilitate weekly classroom Circles, provide restorative facilitation for in-school conflict & harm, run summer Youth Justice Labs with teenages, and work with our Youth Action Council to hold social justice focused Speaker Series events for youth. RJEI's innovative restorative interventions promote social-emotional skill development and form a mostly preventative
response to crime and conflict in the community. Currently, this program is innovating to address the challenges faced by youth, parents, and teachers during COVID-19, including our different Justice Lab initiatives (i.e., School Justice Lab, Youth Justice Lab & Speaker Series).
The Community Facilitator and Liaison Worker will work with staff and community partners to further the use of restorative justice and its intersections with social and community justice.
