The Restorative Justice Program through Piedmont Mediation Center is seeking adult volunteers to assist with Restorative Justice Conferences in Iredell County.

Who are Restorative Justice Ambassadors?

  • Volunteer community members who help the offender and their family decide how to repair the harm done to the victim or the community, and start the youth on the path to making better choices and decisions.

  • They hold the juvenile accountable in a positive way—to help the victim, the youth and the family as well as the community. They may serve as surrogate victims or community elders in representing their community’s interests.

  • They act as an “ambassador” for Restorative Justice Processes through Piedmont Mediation Center, and may serve on an Advisory Committee for Restorative Justice in Iredell County.
