This fall, we're excited to offer virtual Restorative Practices trainings to our community in partnership with renowned national leader Kerri Berkowitz. If you're not familiar, Restorative Practices focus on strengthening relationships between individuals and social connections within communities.They also emphasize the importance of restoring relationships when harm has occurred, a timely and ever-important element in relationship building for students, teachers, and school communities now more than ever. We acknowledge indigenous peoples from around the world for their wisdom, traditions, and practices, which provide the foundation for restorative practices.
Last fall, more than 65 participants gathered for the training in our conference room at United Way and this September, over 100 convened online together for both introductory and next level Proactive Circles training. Another round of trainings are slated to take place October 19 and 21. If you are interested in attending, please register here.
