Led by CCEJ’s adult education team Iluminar: Training and Coaching for Justice, this relationship-centered training introduces the core concept of Community Building Circles as a foundational practice in establishing a restorative culture.

What is Restorative Justice?
Restorative Justice is centering relationships in all we do, including when harm happens. Community Building Circles are dialogue-based spaces to build empathy, strengthen community, prevent conflict, and prepare for using Restorative Justice as a way to hold people accountable. This work is rooted in a culture shift away from incarceration & carceral thinking, disposability of human beings, three strikes laws/zero-tolerance policies and disproportionately punitive disciplinary models.

Training Summary:
This virtual three-part Community Building Training will be held in 3-hour online sessions on consecutive Wednesdays in October (10/6, 10/13, 10/20) to help you start building your own Restorative Justice practice in your workplace, community, or classroom. We will reflect on our own communication and discipline styles, learn what makes policies and procedures authentically restorative, and engage in skill-building around teambuilding and leading circles. If you are interested in applying restorative practices and leading the work in your own life, this foundational training is for you.

What to Expect:
All of our current training offerings are currently virtual using a Zoom platform. Participants will practice skills through group discussion, hands-on exercises, experiential Circle activities, roleplays, and feedback from experienced trainers.

Attendance at all three sessions and virtual audio/video interaction are required components of the training. This session is not able to be observed passively, and participants should be ready to interact throughout each session.

Participants will leave with their own Circle plans, ready to start leading activities in their own spaces.

Training Cost: $325

Dates & Times:
Wednesdays, October 6, 13, and 20
