We want to highlight the work and resources of an important organization: Restorative Justice for Oakland Youth (RJOY). RJOY has been at the forefront of implementing and institutionalizing Oakland Unified School District's restorative practices, and are leaders in the national conversation. We want to encourage you to look at their website which is full of valuable resources and videos.
If you are based in the Bay Area, they also have many upcoming workshops and ongoing events. For the latest information, give them a follow on Facebook.
We also want to direct your attention to the toolkits, infographics, and resources created by the Schott Foundation for Public Education, including the infographic above.
Their resources can be found here.
To those in the Bay Area, consider attending a free screening of Circles —an award-documentary film about restorative justice in Oakland. Registration is open!
Does all this information get you thinking about ways to integrate restorative practices into your afterschool community? Here at CalSAC, we have a four-module Restorative Practice training and we would be happy to help figure out how to integrate it into your staff's professional development plan.
