Event description


2019 Restorative Practices in Schools Conference!
June 10th-June 14th, 2019

Cloquet Area Alternative Education Program

Registration Closes May 24th, 2019

Restorative Practices are drawn from the traditions of Indigenous people and communities of color around the world. They are grounded in a common knowledge that people are profoundly relational, interconnected, and inherently good. Restorative practices include ways of creating community that honor the importance of relationships amongst all members in the community; as well as practices to repair relationships when harm has been caused and address the needs of all people impacted by the harm.

When integrated into daily living, Restorative Practices support our thriving personally, professionally and within our communities. Showing up in this way expands our potential for successfully creating a peaceful world- inside and out.

The Conference training sessions are open to anyone who works with youth, including school administrators, school board members, teachers, educational aides, school resource officers, school facilities staff members, student support staff members, out of school time staff, youth workers, school volunteers, family members and community partners. Sessions ranging from introductory level to advanced level will be offered. Schools are encouraged to send a team to the trainings. Individuals are welcome.
