Christmas 2019: Restorative justice

This week in gatherings, we learned a little about one of our objectives for this year’s Christmas offering: South Bend Community School Corporation‘s focus on restorative justice.

With funds from our Christmas offering, we hope to support the expansion of restorative justice programs in the South Bend Community Schools, aimed at creating a culture of care throughout the schools that can strengthen relationships between both students & teachers and lead to less exclusionary discipline practices.

Take a look at the video linked below for more information on current restorative justice programs:
