Event Description:

Restorative Practices in Action: A Conference for School and Justice Practitioners

Friday, May 1, 2015
9:00am - 5:00pm (Registration begins at 8:00am)
Gerald W. Lynch Theater, New Building
524 West 59th Street


This conference will focus on the use of restorative practices in schools and the juvenile and criminal justice systems for both new and experienced practitioners in New York State. In schools, the use of restorative practices has been shown to lessen misbehavior among students, as well as to improve the overall climate for learning. Restorative justice is also increasingly being used as an effective alternative to prosecution and/or incarceration for youth. This conference will explore how young people can be held accountable for inappropriate and even serious criminal behaviors without excluding them from instruction or undermining their life prospects with a criminal record. Plenaries and workshops will provide practical advice on racial and culturally competent approaches to restorative practices, as well as the skills youth need to effectively and cooperatively interact with their peers, teachers and the community.   

Co-Sponsored by the New York State Permanent Judicial Commission for Justice for Children & The Center on Race, Crime & Justice of the John Jay College for Criminal Justice
