“Imagine a community where all young people’s needs are met and their voices heard.” – Mary Ann Moran
This grant applies to youth ages 15 to 17 who reside in the Green Valley or Buckingham neighborhoods and are interested in transforming the juvenile legal system and school disciplinary system and addressing adolescent harm through restorative practice.
The power of lived experience cannot be overstated. To achieve system transformation, we must lift-up youth voice, particularly those most impacted by structural oppression. PEERAmbassadors will serve as leaders in their neighborhoods, schools, and community.
Participants will be trained in PEER and in holding restorative conferences.
