Restorative Justice - Volunteer Translators (Mandarin and Cantonese)

The Richmond Restorative Justice Program is centred on helping victims and is aimed at holding young people accountable for their crimes.  The Restorative Justice Program’s mandate is to provide an alternative approach to punishment and discipline in the traditional sense. The program seeks to bring together everyone affected by a crime or conflict with the goal of achieving a just and fair resolution for everyone involved.  The Restorative Justice program relies on volunteers from the community to assist those in need of the program’s services. 

We are currently recruiting for Restorative Justice Volunteer Translators assisting in translating Mandarin and Cantonese languages.

 Interested in applying for this volunteer opportunity?  Please complete the application form and indicate the translation skills you can bring to future Restorative Justice forums.

CARF Accreditation 2017


CARF ASPIRE sponsorship logoA survey team from CARF International* will be visiting on December 11, 2017 through December 13, 2017

We invited the surveyors to evaluate how well we meet international standards for quality. The survey will tell us what we are doing well and ways we might improve. As a result of this survey, we may earn or continue accreditation. As part of the survey, the surveyors will interview people who receive services, their families, our staff, and others. Some questions the survey team members might ask people are:
• Do we provide a clean and safe setting?
• Do you receive the services you need and want?
• Are you treated with respect?
• Do you take part in planning your services?
• Are you told what you need to know about your services?
• Are your questions answered in a way you understand?
• Do you know where to go with questions or concerns?

If you would like to talk with one of the survey team members or want to learn more about CARF International, please let one of our staff members know. You may also contact CARF International directly.
