Restorative Conferences are a special way of healing relationships between people who’ve committed a crime and the people that were affected by it.
A Restorative Conference can include:
- young people or adults
- community members
An NCSA courtworker helps organize these conferences by bringing everyone together and making sure everyone’s voice is heard. The group will talk about how everyone was affected by the incident, how to repair the damages, and how to heal and move forward. In fact, even though talking about the harm caused is important, healing relationships is the main goal of the conferences.
