Volunteer

Advoz’s success in reconciling work depends on the unique talents, experiences and time investments of people like you. Our mediators and facilitators are highly trained volunteers, and our outreach depends on community connections like yours. We welcome your own interest in:

  • Mediating family and other disputes
  • Facilitating restorative dialogue between crime victims and offenders (generally juveniles)
  • Organizing Advoz community outreach, events and trainings

Empower others to resolve disputes and to repair the harm caused in crime by becoming an Advoz volunteer! And help us spread the word about the power of face-to-face dialogue to build peace and a restorative justice.

Take the first step. Join us for a free Lunch & Learn Info Session or mediation/restorative training to equip yourself with these relationship-building skills.

Or go ahead and let us know you want to be involved!

Interns are an integral part of our work.

As an intern, you see behind the scenes of a unique set of programs while gaining organizational skills in a small, energetic staff team with other volunteers. For maximum benefit to you and the organization, we encourage for-credit internships of 4-9 months at 10-15 hours per week (unpaid), but other arrangements are not unusual. The most common internships are:

  • Communications and Outreach, learning to tell the stories of our transformative programs to the wider community unfamiliar with power of mediation and restorative justice;
  • Program Operations, learning to coordinate and facilitate conflict resolution and restorative justice as part of a staff and volunteer team.
