Internship and Volunteer Opportunities

The RJ Center partners with a variety of organizations and courses across campus and in the Bay Area to provide students with field experience in RJ. We've partnered with Community Works West, Restorative Justice for Oakland Youth (RJOY) and SEEDS CRC. Please visit our internships page for more information.

Circles

The RJ Center offers restorative circles to build and strengthen communities, to refine communication skills, and in the case of conflicts. We specialize in campus climate conflicts, and work with multiple circle practitioners to provide circles or mediation services for diverse groups and situations. Contact us through the intake link on the right to set up a circle or training for your organization or group. 

Events

The RJ Center is dedicated to producing educational and awareness-building events on campus. Our goal is to bring members of the community to talk about the issues that matter to them and their peers. 

Research

The Restorative Justice Center conducts and supports research surrounding the history, practice, and potential of Restorative Justice at UC Berkeley, in the Bay Area and internationally. Independent and UC Berkeley student researchers are welcome to work with our Research Fellows program. Current research focuses on the Bay Area RJ movement and campus climate issues.
