Restorative Justice Case Coordinator
Restorative justice has grown as an alternative to the traditional justice system in the United States since the 1970’s, from a grassroots initiative to a revolutionary, state-funded enterprise. The state of Colorado receives national acclaim for progressive legislation, including for being the first and only state to fund restorative justice programs. Since 1994, LCJP has been a state-wide and national leader for the restorative justice movement by defining and exemplifying best standards of training and practice.
Are you interested in a unique opportunity to join a leading organization in a progressive, growing field? Are you eager to organize community members to have a voice in justice, as well as lean into discomfort around conflict in order to help make things right? By joining the LCJP team, you will help define and maintain best practices in our field, while collaboratively learning from successes and challenges in order to teach, train, and mentor others. LCJP staff committedly utilizes a restorative approach to thoughtfully and authentically address conflict and relationships.
LCJP staff is dedicated to educating the community in conflict resolution skills and techniques informed by our experiences. If you would like to know more about LCJP culture, you are invited to one of our monthly Restorative Practices Orientations to learn more before applying.
