Michael Szostak » Directory

The​ Restorative Approaches (RA) Collaborative​ is comprised of 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 to their community justice centers. Many have experience in both community and school-level restorative justice work.

Therefore it is important each school does its own research before contacting a collaborative member. You can start that work by searching this directory and reading the profiles.
