About FGIRJC

Our Mission:

Dedicated to Accountability, Fairness, Respect and Compassion.

The Franklin Grand Isle Restorative Justice Center is an organization serving both Franklin and Grand Isle Counties in Vermont. FGIRJC provides highly successful restorative justice programs, effective education and prevention resources and valuable intervention services. 

The Franklin Grand Isle Restorative Justice Center’s vision is guided by restorative principles creating opportunities for meaningful engagement in order to prevent and address harm and build a safe and inclusive community.    

FGIRJC is made up of an Executive Director, nine staff members, 9 advisory board members, and nearly 65 community volunteers who serve on the agency’s many restorative justice panels.

Through FGIRJC’s community-based programs, individuals are given the opportunity to learn from their mistakes, gain new skills, make amends to affected parties, give back to their community, and repair the harm they have caused. FGIRJC offers a wide variety of support services and programming to meet the ever-changing needs of our participants and community.

 

FGIRJC is an active member of the Vermont Association of Court Diversion Programs and the Community Justice Network of Vermont. The Franklin Grand Isle Restorative Justice Center is also an entity of The City of Saint Albans.
