The Restorative Justice Project – Maine has announced that it will hold a series of informational sessions open to anyone interested in learning more about the many ways to volunteer with the Project.

Interested parties can join a local steering team to guide the growth of restorative practices; facilitate, mentor, or serve as a surrogate or community member in the Harm Repair Program; work on advocacy and policy projects or participate in an Open Table process to welcome someone returning to community post-incarceration.
