My first-hand experiences of facilitating a
VORP (Victim Offender Reconciliation Program)
case mediation confirmed my interest in pursuing
my study in peacemaking and conflict studies at
Peacemaking Center, Fresno Pacific University.
The case was referred to VORP by the
Fresno county Juvenile court. A teenager was convicted
of taking property from somebody’s house.
The offender was invited to the victim’s house for
a party by a house sitter while the victims were out
of town on vacation. Once coming back home from
vacation, the victims discovered several items
missing. (excerpt)
