Human-Centered Restorative Practices for Whole People, Whole Relationships, and Whole Communities
Who are you?
What stories can you tell us about who you are?
How can we connect those stories to our mission within this community?
“In 15 years as an educator, this is the best PD I’ve ever had. Every teacher should have this experience. Rejuvenating!”

We believe that true justice in schools prioritizes the needs of humans over the needs of systems. Restorative Practice NYC provides equity-centered training in restorative justice and mindfulness processes for individuals, 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.
We advocate for story-telling as an opportunity to re-imagine and recreate our world. Beyond the traditional standards of academic achievements, Restorative Practice NYC prompts student advocates to create teaching and learning spaces where young people are able to renew themselves with the richness of their own histories and become the authors of their reality, their lives, and their future.
