Restorative Practices/Justice Programs

By using Restorative Practices interventions in schools, we aim to resolve escalating student conflict between peers and others, reduce the number of days students might have been suspended, and teach youth more appropriate methods of resolving conflict. Restorative Justice Conferencing with juveniles who commit crimes is used to divert youth in the justice system who commit crimes by providing them with an opportunity to meet with the person they harmed, learn about the impact of their behavior on the person and the community, and repair the harm, instead of using punishment as a way to repair harm.
