The Woodlawn Restorative Justice HUB program leverages relationships between street organization and affiliated opportunity youth from conflicting street organization territories, to interrupt their violent behavior and engage the youth in long-term leadership development, violence prevention, and peacebuilding.
The goals of The Woodlawn Restorative Justice HUB are to:
1) Reduce violence;
2) Develop community capacity to hold restorative justice peace circles;
3) Create a long-term mentorship support system for youth at high risk;
4) Develop youth civic leadership;
5) Create opportunities for artistic expression in a trauma-informed context;
6) Connect disconnected young people to social services.
Woodlawn Restorative Justice HUB is an experience that every young person deserves. And there’s nothing quite like experiencing the magic tools of working together to promote peacebuilding within the community. The transformation of commitment and dedication is priceless. We recognize that the gift of peace, laughter, communication and conflict resolution is equivalent to the divine joy of discovering a new friend. Our process promotes a new worldview of accomplishing, healing, and overcoming fear. There are gifts associated with living with purpose. Your charitable contribution to the Woodlawn Restorative Justice HUB will help to ensure that we plant the seed of opportunity for our youth to spread their wings and soar to the top.
