Circles are a foundational practice of restorative justice. Circle Keepers are not facilitators - they are participants in the circle process tasked with keeping the circle aligned with restorative values. If you are the leader or participant in a group discussion that is seeking to actively engage everyone involved in the discussion, the Circle Keeper Workshop is a great place to start!
What We Teach
This interactive workshop will demonstrate the community circle process and give each participant the opportunity to contribute to the circle discussion. Participants will learn the basic steps of the circle process and the foundational values to keep the circle respectful, engaging, and restorative.
