The Restorative Justice Coordinator - Float position will support the implementation and development of the Dane County TimeBank’s Restorative Justice Project in alignment with the TimeBank’s mission, vision, values, and philosophy:

Mission: ​To connect people in sharing time and talents to meet needs, improve systems, and address community issues throughout Dane County.

Vision: ​An interconnected community in which meaningful relationships drive collective change.

By 2023, the authentic way in which the Dane County TimeBank approaches community issues will have inspired systems and social change. The active engagement of members will have generated recognized impact on an individual and collective level. The organization will be modeling resource sharing and community building that breaks down walls between diverse groups and demonstrates mutual respect and support for all.

Timebanking Values:

• ​Assets​ – Everyone has something to contribute to the well-being of others in their community. • ​Reciprocity ​– We need each other. Giving and receiving are the basic building blocks of positive social relationships and healthy communities.

• ​Respect​ – Every human being matters. Everyone deserves respect from individuals and civic institutions.

• ​Social Capital​ – Belonging to a mutually supportive social network brings more meaning to our lives and new opportunities to rebuild our trust in one another.

• ​Work ​– Some work is beyond price. Those who carry out the really essential activities like bringing up healthy children, helping to keep their communities safe, and caring for those around them, need to be validated and rewarded for their work.

Restorative Justice Philosophy​:  The TimeBank is in alignment with the YWCA's definition of Restorative Justice, which states, "Restorative justice is an anti-racist movement rooted in indigenous knowledge that aims to interrupt and dismantle the cycle of harm through collective, radical, vulnerability and love. Restorative Justice recognizes the need to heal and repair the historical and transgenerational harm from our society’s practices and systems of retributive and unjust laws that are embedded in white supremacist culture. Restorative justice is about nurturing relationships and interconnectedness and empowering communities to meet our needs and mend the relationships that make us whole."

Position Summary:
The ​Restorative Justice Coordinator - Float position ​works closely with the Restorative Justice team to plan and facilitate restorative justice circles and processes with youth and families as needed in the schools and in the community. The Coordinator will run specific sites as needed and provide coordination, support, follow up, and advocacy for youth as an alternative to municipal tickets. This is a part-time Float position, requiring mainly afternoon/evening hours and some occasional work on weekends, for a total of 20 hours per week. The position pays between $16-$18 per hour and includes frequent travel to community and school sites. In addition, the person in this position will be responsible for developing and maintaining activities that engage youth, community, and TimeBank members in the project.
