The MCJC sponsors special events that highlight the work of local and national/international restorative justice practitioners.
"Dominic Barter's workshop was probably
the most valuable workshop I have ever attended
(and at age 56, I've been to quite a few)."
"What a great day!
It makes me want to be more creative in what I do!"
The MCJC offers its services to manage potential or actual public conflicts by designing processes to disseminate accurate, unbiased information and by offering neutral facilitation of structured dialogue. The MCJC trains and supervises volunteer service providers in conferencing, mediation, and Restorative Justice Panel processes.
We have six Montpelier Restorative Justice Panel
meetings a month, plus one each in Waterbury and Northfield, where trained volunteers meet with people who have been sentenced to reparative probation and their victims to talk about what happened, identify who was harmed and how, and collaboratively create an agreement to make amends and not reoffend.
