The program director or assistant director and at least two other staff members are required to attend this training series. (minimum of 3 people per program)


By registering for this training, you are committing to all training session dates and two modeling sessions at your program between training sessions 2 and 3.

Part 1- An Introduction to Restorative Practices and Questions

Part 2- Proactive and Responsive Circles

Part 3- Restorative Justice Conferences and Change at the Program Level


Do you want to create a culture of care in your program where youth learn conflict resolution through a structured process that supports all youth to have an equal voice and develop important social and emotional (SEL) skills?


Research on restorative practices in school and afterschool settings has shown significant improvement in behavior and program climate as support is given to youth who get in trouble to help them gain skills to change their behavior. Often, troublesome youth are stuck in a pattern of behavior and they don’t know how to change.


During this three-part training series, you will learn how to create and sustain an out of school time space where youth are taught to learn from their mistakes and repair harm done instead of isolating and punishing youth.  Modeling and technical assistance on how to run Restorative Circles/Conferences will also be provided between training sessions.


The goal of this training series and cohort model will be for OST programs to move towards becoming more restorative in their discipline practices through implementing a plan that involves all stakeholders. Learn how to shift the climate and culture of your program in a sustainable way to promote authentic dialogue, equity of voice, and a true sense of belonging for youth, staff and families.
