WHAT ARE RESTORATIVE STRATEGIES?
The purpose of this program is to provide youth with life skills that will help foster self-worth, justice, equality, and confidence. Empowering youth with restorative justice strategies will help them become more aware and accepting of differences, more capable of showing empathy, better able to connect with peers and authority figures, and will help reduce crime.
Other anticipated outcomes of this program include: more stable home lives for area youth and a reduction in bullying and truancy.
We would like to give our thanks to the DRA for their generous donation in support of our Restorative Strategies Program.
The DCY seeks additional funding to continue to implement this important program.
