Time to Circle Up!

Bringing restorative circles into your setting – whether school, program, agency, or organization – can be a very effective way to build relationships and create a strong community, and serves as the foundation for dealing with more challenging issues as they arise.

In this day-long Circle Facilitation Training we will introduce community building circles, provide experiential opportunities to plan and model, and share circle facilitation tips. We will talk about components and stages of a circle and about how to address challenges. Based on participants’ needs, we may also examine specific circles, such as re-entry circles for community members who have been excluded previously.
