Volunteer Opportunities

We are currently a fully volunteer-run organization so any support that you can offer is greatly appreciated.  We cannot pay people, but as a start-up group, you get the opportunity to learn and grow lots of skills and be a part of the birth of a good way to be in the world.

Technical/Technology Needs

Research and Outreach
The website will be the space to create connections between practitioners in the Detroit area, share resources, and promote events of the people in the network.  We need 1-2 people who can do research on the practitioners in the Detroit area and do outreach to invite them to be a part of the network.

Organizing Needs

Conference/Gathering Organizer
We are planning on hosting a gathering/conference in the Fall or Winter of this year.  We would like to bring in someone from out of town to do additional training and support us in developing a vision for the Detroit area for restorative justice for the next 5-10 years.  We need 1-2 people to be the main organizers of the event.

Practitioners and Support Staff
Every other month we will offer a Speaker’s Series/Practice Session.  If you have experience in doing restorative justice work and would like to both share and learn from others, please let us know if you would be willing to share a bit of the wisdom that you have gained from your work!

Steering Team
We are a loose group of 5-7 people who do restorative justice work in the Detroit area.  We are open to new and creative ideas on creating the Network. We meet once every other month and provide the steering and guidance for the group.
If you have other resources to offer or want to learn more about what we are doing, you can email us at detroitrestorativejustice@gmail.com
