North Shore Restorative Justice Society (NSRJ) is hiring!
Position: Community Liaison Worker (30 hours per week, temporary)
Reports to: Executive Director
The Program and Role:
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, which provide hundreds of youth the opportunity to connect with themselves, their peers and build a strong community fabric. RJEI's innovative restorative interventions promote social-emotional skill development and form a 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 through a virtual Youth Justice Lab this summer.
The Community Liaison will work with staff and community partners to further the use of restorative justice and to address social isolation and crime and conflict-related needs arising from COVID-19.
