TRAINING for RJ COORDINATORS
In this experiential training, led by experienced restorative justice coordinators, we will bring knowledge, experience and skills to support the practice of community building circles and harm circles on your site. We will also facilitate the creation of a community of practice based on your training group, for ongoing feedback, consultation, and other forms of support. In addition, you will develop strategies for navigating school sites, including how to work with administrators, support staff, teachers, students, peer-peer RJ groups, and families, and guiding your school toward building a holistic RJ culture.
Note: in response to social distancing guidelines, we will hold this training online, in 2-hour sessions over a 5-day period. To make the most of the experience, participants will prepare for the training by completing several readings and watching short films, and will be asked to complete homework between sessions.
