The process: If you are interested in becoming a volunteer in any of the above capacities, please fill out the Volunteer Application and send by fax, e-mail, or mail to Restorative Justice Chatham-Kent.
If your completed application meets our requirements, we will get in contact and invite you to an interview. Upon successful completion of our screening interview, you will be required to provide us with a valid and recent Criminal Records Check from the Chatham-Kent Police Service, (‘recent’ meaning it is dated within six months prior to the date this application is made). As you can understand, being in a position of trust in dealing with the youth of our community requires a Criminal Records Check as well as reference checks. These requirements are necessary for the protection of our youth.
Once you are accepted as a volunteer with Restorative Justice Chatham-Kent, you will be required to attend our Volunteer Orientation/Education Program, where you will be given specific training in the areas of Restorative Justice; working with adolescents; community resources and other topics relevant to service delivery. Our Volunteer Orientation/Education Program is offered on an as-needed basis.
