Human-Centered Strategies for Dynamic School Communities.


To Begin

What is your school's vision?

Our Mission


We believe that true justice in schools prioritizes the needs of humans over the needs of systems. In that regard, Restorative Practice NYC provides equity-centered training in restorative justice and mindfulness processes for schools and community-based organizations. We believe that the dynamic relationships formed in holistic educational communities can lead to transformative, life-long learning and that, with intention, schools can become sustainable, peaceable and humane spaces for everyone involved.
