Lakes Area Restorative Justice Project training offered
Lakes Area Restorative Justice Project (LARJP) is growing and expanding into new areas. Now is your chance to make plans to sign up and attend the spring conference, facilitator training and to join the team of volunteers working to make a difference in the lives of crime victims, youth and all citizens of Crow Wing County. Volunteers generally donate about 10-15 hours per case and accept three to five cases per year. Cases can be scheduled at the volunteer’s convenience. Volunteers work in pairs and will be mentored by LARJP staff as long as needed.
Volunteers need to be 21 years of age; have their own transportation; a desire to help their community including youth, victims and families; and must complete 20 hours of training as well as four on-going in-services per year.
The three-day LARJP training will be 4-9 p.m. April 27, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 28 and from noon to 7 p.m. April 29 at Central Lakes College, Brainerd.
