Volunteer Accountability Board
YOUR COMMUNITY NEEDS YOU!
The Neighborhood Accountability Board (NAB) program uses a restorative justice approach to juvenile crime. Instead of the standard criminal justice punishment model, Lee County’s local volunteer NABs (in partnership with the State Attorney’s Office and the Department of Juvenile Justice) focus on what harm was done and what needs to be done to repair the harm. At Neighborhood Accountability Board Volunteer training, you will learn about the traditional juvenile court system versus the restorative justice system. Additionally, you will learn how to put restorative justice principles into practice. Upon completing this training, you will be required to submit an application, pass a background check, and observe two conferences before you can participate on the Boards. There is no set time commitment for the Boards. You can volunteer as little as 1-2 hours a month. Anyone 14 years of age or older can volunteer with the NABs (youth need parental consent). If you are interested, please call (239) 533-7947 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
