Student engagement is an effective and powerful way to incorporate restorative efforts into school culture. This workshop series will provide participants with strategies to implement youth voice to communicate school discipline standards, training, and community advocacy and involvement.
School leaders and behavior support staff serving students in grades 6-12 in public and public charter schools in DC are invited to attend. Participants are encouraged, but not required, to attend all workshops. Each workshop is two hours in length.
Workshop 3: Harnessing Student Collaboration in Community Advocacy and Involvement. Student-led community advocacy is a remarkable mechanism to improve school culture and climate. Workshop participants will survey Youth Justice, Inc.’s student-led, restorative justice-based Peer Court program and its community advocacy efforts. Participants will identify potential student advocacy opportunities within their own unique school environments.
