DNDA Restorative Justice Program

DNDA seeks to aid at-risk community youth by offering therapeutic services and, eventually, the opportunity for court diversion through the use of Peacemaking and Healing Circles at the Interagency Academy School.

Peacemaking and Healing Circles are restorative justice practices based on historical indigenous customs. Peacemaking and Healing Circles provide a safe environment for diverse groups of people to come together to share their experiences, and to gain a greater sense of understanding for one another. Participants learn to appreciate similarities and respect differences, to break down barriers and stereotypes and to facilitate honest dialogue. This program aims to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline, reduce absenteeism, increase confidence and personal net worth, and increase the graduation rates.
