Do you want to be part of bold criminal justice reform in your community?
Neighborhood Court will be hosting a Volunteer Panelist Training on Saturday, April 27th. The session will be at the Davis Police Department on 2600 5th Street, from 8:45am - 5pm.
Neighborhood Court uses the principles of restorative justice to resolve criminal offenses outside of the traditional criminal justice system. Volunteer panelists have the opportunity to participate in conferences with fellow community members. Panelists hear criminal cases, engage in meaningful discussion, and identify constructive ways to address both the harms caused by crime and the underlying causes of criminal misconduct. Neighborhood Court’s valued volunteers help victims, community members, and participants move forward in a positive direction.
Step 1: To apply please go to our volunteer page to register and submit an application to sign up for training dates.

Step 3: Participate in a 2-hour Mock Conference session the following Thursday evening, from 6-8:30pm at 600 A Street in Davis.
