Specific Tasks / Responsibilities

Virtual Circles of Support and Accountability Canada is accepting volunteers to support individuals who have been convicted of sexual offences as they reintegrate into the community. Virtual CoSA volunteers will attend weekly virtual meetings (about 1 hour per week) to create a circle of support and accountability. This involves role-modelling pro-social behaviour, active listening, helping the individual access appropriate resources, celebrating all the successes during the reintegration period, and creating an environment of trust where the Core Member is equipped to make healthy choices and live out their commitment to a non-offending future. Experience in this field is not required, but volunteers should be interested in learning more about the criminal justice system and related topics. Orientation will be provided through a virtual platform. A one-year commitment is required.

Goals & Objectives

Seeking a Virtual Circle of Support and Accountability Volunteer who helps reduce recidivism of sexual assault by supporting sexual offenders as they reintegrate into the community.

Community Impact

Virtual Circles of Support and Accountability (Virtual CoSA) supports people who have sexually offended as they reintegrated into the community following incarceration.
