Justice Conferences- Advanced Level
* Completion of the Restorative Practices in OST
3-part training series is a prerequisite for this advanced level training.
Now that you have
completed the Restorative Practices in OST training series, take your
discipline practices to the next level in Restorative Practices by
learning how to facilitate Restorative Justice Conferences as an
alternative to suspension or expulsion for youth.
Learn how to
implement a pre-conference with youth who have done harm and youth who have
been harmed by running a conference with all parties to help
youth 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 after
this training session.
The goal of this
training 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.
