MRR training begins March 27

Applications are being accepted from those wanting to volunteer

Mission has a restorative justice service that assists those affected by harm, crime or conflict, and they are currently in need of volunteers.

Mission Restorative Resolutions (MRR) is a volunteer-driven service that depends on people from the community to complete the required training and then serve as a community facilitator, in teams of three.

Restorative justice sessions bring parties together to talk about how broken relationships might be repaired and how to remedy any harm caused. The service receives referrals from the RCMP, Mission Public Schools, Crown Counsel, and community members.

Applications are available at municipal hall (upstairs), at www.mission.ca/mrr, by calling 604-820-3755, or via e-mail at mrr@mission.ca, and must be completed by March 26. Training starts March 27.
