Court Referrals: By experiencing the restorative process, minors gain a better understanding on how their actions have harmed the victim, themselves, and the community. Victims are given an opportunity to ask questions that have not been answered, tell their story, relate the impact of the harm (crime) and have a voice in deciding what the minor needs to do to repair the harm. Juveniles become accountable.
Juvenile Detention Program: In the restorative detention community, juveniles participate in a decision-making process to determine the values they choose for relationships. They are empowered to maintain those values as members of the community. They explore the concept of the circle as a way to address conflict on an on-going basis.
