Ways to Get Involved

Be a part of a Juvenile Court Restorative Circle

At PARI we create restorative circles for youth and their families. We work with young people who are cited for a wide array of offenses. There is a need for more future facilitators! Anyone can begin as a community member by sitting in on a circle. Trainings are scheduled on a regular basis. Please feel free to contact us to learn more about restorative circle trainings.

Volunteers Needed for WRAP and Restore initiative programs

PARI’s WRAP initiative (Wrap-around Restorative Attendance Program) has been successful in creating a multi-tiered approach for Attendance Success. We can use volunteers to assist both at schools and at the Juvenile Court Services level. This is a rare opportunity to be a part of a community care process that supports a school culture of belonging, inclusion and respect.

Please contact us if you’re interested in working with WRAP.

Our RESTORE initiative offers an opportunity for youth who have shoplifted to deal with their charge in a meaningful way for themselves, their family and the wider community.  This program is modeled with permission after the Restore Program in Fort Collins, Colorado. Please contact us if you’re interested in learning more about RESTORE.
