Community Advisory Board (MCJC)

About the Board

The Community Advisory Board gives community input in setting goals, priorities, and policies for the Montpelier Community Justice Center (MCJC).  

The Montpelier Community Justice Center promotes the well-being of the community through the application of restorative principles and practices. The Community Advisory Board's role is to represent the voice of the community in strategic planning and goal setting. It supports the MCJC Director in problem-solving around achieving goals, especially those that are impeded by external forces. The Board does not have decision-making authority, but rather serves in an advisory role. Board members also serve as ambassadors for the MCJC in the community and promote the growth of restorative justice and restorative practices. 


Meetings are currently held monthly with the exception of summer and holiday breaks. Please contact the Director at 802 522 5566 or for more information about CAB meeting dates and times or to learn more about volunteering.
