Restorative Justice offers youth growth and healing through tiered system
The three tiers of the Restorative Justice triangle allow youth offenders to navigate difficulties and tough interactions. The process allows youth to take responsibility for their actions and move forward with a willingness to repair the harm their actions caused. In partnership with the Ninth Judicial District, YouthZone offers restorative justice training to schools and law enforcement agents from Aspen to Parachute.
Everyone has a story to share. What’s yours? Through games, storytelling and team building, Theatre Aspen will turn youth stories into art. High school students can take advantage of free classes from professionals from Theatre Aspen for five Thursdays from 4 pm to 6 pm at YouthZone’s Glenwood location. Classes start Oct. 24. Sign up for any or all of the five classes.Click here for information.
