The Restorative Approaches (RA) Collaborative is comprised of 35+ Vermont trainers, researchers, Community Justice Center (CJC) staff, and school educators and leaders. Membership in this collaborative is based on a deep commitment to the development of the restorative approach in Vermont schools, not on any specific criteria related to experience as a restorative approach trainer in schools.
Some members have worked in a wide range of schools throughout Vermont and beyond while others bring expertise from restorative justice work in their community justice centers. Many have experience in both the community and school level restorative justice work.
Therefore it is important each school does their own research before contacting a collaborative member. You can start that work by searching this directory and reading the full profiles. If you have any questions please contact email@example.com
