Center for Restorative Programs

Center for Restorative Programs


San Luis Valley Victim-Offender Reconciliation Program began as a victim-offender dialogue project under Mountain Trails Youth Ranch in late 1994, with assistance from Mennonite Voluntary Service. SLV-VORP was a community-based, rather than criminal justice system program, drawing on volunteers from throughout the Valley communities. In 1999, SLV-VORP began a second program area, School Initiatives, which provides training and consulting for K-12 schools in conflict management, peer mediation, and restorative disciplinary alternatives.

Beginning in 2005, SLV-VORP participated in a three-year Bullying Prevention Initiative with The Colorado Trust. Throughout this time, the agency expanded its involvement with schools and after-school sites in the Valley. During this time, a pilot project was also initiated to offer Parent-Teen mediation services.

In 2008, SLV-VORP changed its name to the Center for Restorative Programs in order to more accurately represent its wide range of services.
