Volunteer Opportunities

Represent the Community's voice

We are seeking community volunteers to join this roundtable discussion between victims, offenders and community. Restorative Justice panels bring together victims, offenders and trained community members to discuss the impact of a crime and create a legally binding contract to help “right the wrong” in a meaningful way. There is also a panel specifically working with young people. For more information, contact Jocelyn Dubuque at (802) 865-7589 or jdubuque@burlingtonvt.gov.

Support victims 

Parallel Justice volunteers contact victims to offer support and see what assistance they may need, even if a suspect is not identified. They also help with awareness building campaigns to reduce crime. To learn more, contact Clark Sheldon at (802) 540-2394 or csheldon@bpdvt.org.

Donate goods or services

Parallel Justice for Victims of Crime is always grateful for donated services (massage, house cleaning, automotive repair, etc...) or items to give to victims of crime such as laptops or iPods to replace stolen goods. Contact Rain Banbury at (802) 540-2394 or rbanbury@burlingtonvt.gov to find out more.

Meet with offenders

Trained volunteers create a circle of support and accountability for individuals returning to Burlington from prison, to help support a successful transition to life on the outside.  Contact Stuart Recicar at (802) 540-1719 or srecicar@burlingtonvt.gov to learn more.
