The Community Peacebuilding Team aims to engage youth who are involved in - or at risk of being involved in - gangs, violence, and delinquency, as well as to address the culture and institutions of violence within which they have grown up.
We believe youth have the power and wisdom to transform their own behavior through social-emotional learning, personal expression, wrap-around social service referrals, as well as meaningful involvement and relationships within their community. Our Intervention Clubs and summer promote the peace programming are designed to provide this kind of positive support. When youth face the punitive consequences of antisocial behavior, our Restorative Justice program provides youth and the community with effective alternatives to school disciplinary and juvenile justice responses that promote true accountability, personal growth, and constructive reintegration into the community.
