RTS Facilitator Training

Center for Restorative Programs hosts an annual facilitator training for ReThinking Substances. ReThinking Substances is a diversion program for youth who are cited or charged with a minor in possession of alcohol, tobacco (including vaping), or marijuana. Facilitators lead a process where youth take responsibility for their actions, recognize the impact of their actions, and work to repair the harm caused. Facilitators are compensated for each circle that they facilitate.

Upcoming Training Dates: Friday, October 14 1-8pm and Saturday, October 15 9am-5pm

Mediation Training

Regularly, we conduct training for community members who are interested in becoming volunteer mediators for our programs. This two-day hands-on training includes the basic tenets of mediation, personal skills for dealing with conflict, and hands-on mediation practice.


Topical Workshops, facilitated conversations, and trainings are held on an ad hoc basis.
