In-Person: Foundations In Restorative Justice

The Restorative Center’s foundational training provides an experience-based understanding of TRC’s community based model of Restorative Justice. Our trainings are engaging, lively and ever-evolving. We utilize theory based lectures, the interactive circle experience, skill development, mock circles, as well as small and large group discussions. TRC’s Newburgh Model Workbook will be distributed to participants. This course is open to newcomers to TRC, as well as to trained Circle Keepers who would like to deepen their foundations in the work.

This training will be led by Shailly Agnihotri, TRC’s Founder/ED, along with experienced teen and community leaders in Restorative Justice.
