Restorative Practices in Communities (RPIC):

The Restorative Practices in Communities (RPIC) department offers restorative models and alternatives to traditional approaches of conflict resolution to institutional systems, nonprofit organizations, coalitions, families and communities across Southern California. After an incident of harm or conflict, RPIC brings together the people who are responsible and those who are impacted to address the harm caused and create agreements to build meaningful justice. Through our four core programs – Restorative Youth Diversion (RYD), Restorative Community Circles (RCC), Raising FUTUREs Restorative Parent/Caregiver Education, and Restorative Justice Training and Technical Assistance, CCEJ is developing a more humane and just system for community accountability.

Restorative Youth Diversion (RYD): Restorative Justice diversion program offered as an alternative to the juvenile justice system for youth 17 and under that have been charged with a crime and those who were harmed by that action. RYD provides youth with intensive case management as they understand the reasons for their actions and the harm they have caused, plan for future success, and practice accountability to the people they harmed. CCEJ partners with a wide range of referring legal agencies including police departments and district attorney offices.

Restorative Community Circles (RC Circles): Restorative Justice processes for community groups, families, individuals, neighbors, coworkers, and others interested in addressing conflicts and collaboratively creating agreements to support healthy resolution and meaningful healing steps for all participants involved.

Raising FUTUREs (Families United in Thriving and Understanding Restorative Environments): A Restorative Justice education program for parents/caregivers of adolescent youth who are targeted by the juvenile justice system. Raising FUTUREs provides workshops that strengthen nonviolent communication skills, guide participants to use restorative justice principles and practices in their everyday family life, prepare caregivers to advocate for their families in a range of settings including schools and workplaces, and help parents and caregivers guide their children away from the juvenile justice system.

Restorative Justice Training and Technical Assistance: CCEJ provides training and technical assistance services to a wide range of agencies to build practitioners’ capacity to implement Restorative Justice practices internally in their policies, practices, and culture, and externally with the communities they serve. CCEJ also offers quarterly trainings throughout the year open to community members who are interested in learning the foundations of Restorative Justice, Community Mediation (Cultivating Compassion), and circlekeeper training (Healing Harms) to become a volunteer on our Restorative Justice diversion casework.
