Huronia Restorative Justice Project
FACE Office is at 317 Midland Ave, Midland, ON; various locations (if required)
Trained volunteers facilitate community justice circles between victims and their offenders. The facilitator, along with a co-facilitator, will receive a case referral with all pertinent information. Cases may be referred from youth criminal court or adult criminal court, by the police. Cases may also be referred by a school. A FACE facilitator will then set up an interview time with the victim to discuss the procedures, answer any questions, and find out who they will be bringing for support. The same is done with the offender. A date is set and then the circle is prepared. Everyone attending the circle gives their input into designing an agreement for the offender to follow. A member of the circle offers to track the agreement and its completion. In many cases, if the agreement is fulfilled, the court may decide that criminal charges will be dropped. Victims have a chance to share their feelings and impact of the incident, which is often not possible in court. Offenders hear the impact their choices made firsthand. All parties end up with a better understanding of the incident, and of each other.

Crisis Responder   Bruce County  Grey County  Muskoka District  Simcoe County 
Kids Help Phone
Any confidential space with a strong and reliable internet connection (ex. your own home).
For almost three decades, young people have been reaching out to Kids Help Phone for the support they need – but for every person we’ve been able to help, others have been unable to access our services. That’s why we are driven to remove and reduce barriers to access and support, and to create vital, innovative, and relevant new service offerings. 
 
This fall, we will be launching a texting service trial, to help provide empathetic support to young people via SMS messaging. Right now, we are gearing up to train and recruit Crisis Responders who will answer texts from young people. The volunteer position is remote, meaning that Crisis Responders will be trained and will be able to support young people from anywhere in Canada as long as they have a strong, reliable internet connection! 
 
With respect to the volunteers' weekly commitment, Crisis Responders are asked to volunteer for 4 hours a week for one year.  
 
Becoming a Crisis Responder is simple: 
 
Step 1: Fill out the online application, which should take approximately 30 minutes. 
 
Step 2: If selected for training, obtain and successfully get a Vulnerable Sector check (don’t worry, we will tell you how to do this!) 
 
Step 3: Complete the 36-hour online training within six weeks 
 
Step 4: Sign the Crisis Responder Agreement, which includes our Code of Conduct and Privacy Policy 
 
Step 5: Take your first shift and start changing lives! 
 
Once we review the applications, we’ll contact everyone we think will be a great fit as a Crisis Responder. If you are selected, we will send you the Crisis Responder Agreement as well as information on background checks and our training. 
 
Training: 
We are offering a 36 hour, online training that volunteers can complete on their own time during a 6 week time period. You can train from anywhere where you have a secure, reliable internet connection. In your PJs, at the kitchen table, or in your secret underground lair: whatever works for you! 
 
If this sounds exciting to you, please complete the online application to get started.
