Community Justice and Peacebuilding Program

Piedmont Dispute Resolution Center (PDRC) has developed a Community Justice and Peacebuilding Program (CJP) to provide early access to mediation and restorative justice services in the communities of Northern Culpeper, Fauquier, and Rappahannock.

Volunteers are the heart of our program and we hope to have a diverse group of community members trained in conflict resolution skills and restorative practices to promote the peaceful resolution of conflict before it escalates in their communities.

Our program provides professional training, ongoing staff mentoring and support, giving volunteers the skills and confidence to mediate the most challenging community disputes. Being a volunteer mediator or restorative justice facilitator with PDRC is a unique way to give back to the community while gaining valuable personal skills.

We will hold mediations and restorative justice conferences in our offices, community centers, and in the neighborhoods where disputes arise. Our services will be offered either free of charge or on a sliding scale because we do not want cost to limit access to our services.

CJP Offers these services

  • Mediation
  • Restorative Conferences
  • Conflict Coaching
  • Community Dialogue Facilitation
  • Conflict Resolution Mini Workshops
  • Training and Oversight for PDRC Volunteer Community Peacebuilder: Mediators and Restorative Justice Facilitators
