Restorative Practices in
the Juvenile Justice System
A restorative community conference (RCC) is a face to face problem solving meeting between people that were harmed, the people who caused that harm and community members.
Led by trained and experienced RCC facilitators, the people in the RCC discuss the harm caused, ways to repair the harm as much as possible, and ways to prevent further harm.
In the meeting, the youth responsible for the harm is held accountable for the crime. Together, the group creates an action plan for the youth to repair the harm to the person, the community, the family, and themselves.
