We received a grant from Telus for a youth engagement project, and are hiring for two positions:
Position # 1: Videographer
- We have $1,000.00 for someone to design, film, and edit a video that we’ll post on our website and other social media platforms to explain our work to youth. The film will need to clearly and concisely describe the work we do, using youth-friendly concepts and language
- Filming and editing experience is required
Position #2: Online Orientation Designer
- We have $750.00 for someone to create and build an online orientation to our program for our youth clients, as well as create and build an online quiz based on the content in the video (described above). The language will have to be clear, concise, and youth-friendly. Our preference is that the orientation and quiz be done through our WordPress website so we have long-term access to it, but we’re open to other suggestions
- Experience is required

Restorative Justice Victoria
We’re so thankful for Telus funding our latest project, “Upgrading Youth Engagement.”
Over the next seven months, we’ll be using technology to innovatively engage youth and increase our efficiency in delivering restorative justice services in three ways. We will create:
- A video about restorative justice using a youth-focused lens that will better inform youth clients about the work we do, namely our philosophy, goals, and values, which will also include an online quiz following it;
- An online orientation for our youth clients (victims and offenders) that introduces more details about our services and program guidelines, as well as some of the more complex concepts in our work like accountability, remorse, and root causes of crime; and
- Marketing materials that outline our program for youth clients that can be distributed to youth, parents, and referral sources (e.g. police and Crown).
We can’t wait to get started!
The purpose of this partnership guide is to encourage, support, and enable police-based victim services and restorative justice agencies to develop and strengthen formal working relationships with one another. The overarching goal of this project is to enhance services to better meet the needs of victims involved in restorative justice in British Columbia. A more comprehensive version of this guide is available upon request.
This project was supported through a contribution from the Civil Forfeiture Office in partnership with Victim Services and Crime Prevention Division, Ministry of Justice, Province of British Columbia.
