This final project report (15 September 2000) details an effort to mobilize volunteers for community justice services. In October 1999 the John Howard Society of Moncton initiated a project to address crime prevention through the development of restorative justice. The directions for this project were: 1) the recruitment, and training of volunteers to participate in restorative justice initiatives; 2) the development of committed partners and a working partnership structure that facilitates continued development of crime prevention initiatives, community involvement and restorative justice practices; and 3) specific efforts to increase community awareness and support for restorative justice. The report includes evaluation results.
