In the Conflict Center Community Group Conferencing model, community members represent the local community voice and are responsible for helping to identify harms done by the person who caused harm (offender) as well as suggesting potential contract items that can be completed to repair these harms. The community members have an equal voice in the process. This two hour training will teach volunteers:

  • How to be a Community Member in a Community Group Conference

  • How to talk about the impacts of crime and conflict on the community

  • How to ask questions for understanding the impacts of crime and conflict

  • How to brainstorm ideas for repairing the harmful impacts of crime and conflict


*The training is not drop-in; you must fill out our the volunteer application before attending. Someone will be in touch with you shortly after you submit your application.

When conflict happens in the workplace or people experience inappropriate or difficult behavior at work, relationships are damaged and productivity often suffers.
Workplaces that embrace Restorative Practices have the potential to create a safer, happier and more effective workplace for everyone. Restorative Practices can be used within the workplace both as a preventative measure and to address conflict when it does arise, enabling teams and individuals to work well together.

Restorative Practices can be an effective way to resolve workplace conflict. It involves:
  • bringing together all those affected by conflict
  • providing a safe environment for the expression of perspective
  • allowing participants to come to a shared understanding
  • identifying creative ways to deal with conflict
  • providing opportunities to rebuild damaged relationships and strengthen teams 

Restorative approaches can also be used proactively within the workplace to build strong, positive relationships. Staff meetings, for example, can be focused on building relationships and based around a foundation of mutual respect.
