Restorative Schools   Visions  Project Fundraiser

Celestin's is proud to have hosted an event for the Restorative Schools Visions Project Fundraiser.

 

The purpose of the organization is to provide training in Restorative Justice and Restorative Narrative Practices to schools, including school district personnel, school administrators, teachers, staff, students and their parents/care givers, and community members and professionals who have an interest in schools. Our over-arching goal is to work with schools to establish a school culture of understanding and compassion and to work with students to take responsibility for the mistakes they make using supportive non-punitive practices. We aim to substitute Restorative Justice Practices for out-of-school suspensions and put and end to the school-to-prison pipeline.
