Restorative Justice in Schools

Restorative Justice is a flexible set of practices that are adaptable to many purposes, enabling youth and adults to bring forward their “best self.”

It is optimal to integrate restorative approaches into the daily practices of organizations serving youth to establish a positive climate and build social and emotional skills before introducing restorative justice into situations of conflict and harm.
