Restorative Community Conferencing Training

Georgia Conflict Center (GCC) is working to establish a community-based restorative justice alternative for youth and adults as a diversion from the traditional criminal legal process.  To assist with this restorative justice diversion program, GCC is seeking to train community members to serve as Restorative Community Conferencing (RCC) facilitators.  

Georgia Conflict Center (GCC) is hosting an in-person, 2-day Restorative Community Conferencing Training to prepare facilitators to be able to facilitate Restorative Community Conferences as a diversion from the criminal legal process.  The training is scheduled for Friday, August 27 and Saturday, August 28.  As of July 1, 2021, training registration is nearly full, however, if you are interested in learning more about this training or registering for the training, please fill out this form.  The cost of the training is $250 (scholarships are available based on need).  Once you fill out the form, we will share with you more details related to the program, the training and participant expectations.

Brief Overview of Restorative Community Conferencing: After preparation and meeting prerequisites, trained facilitators bring together the person harmed, person who caused harm, community members, and support people to discuss what happened, the resulting harm, who was impacted, and how the defendant can repair the harm. The RCC results in a contract that the person who caused harm must complete in order for the charges to be dismissed and the case sealed.

We are almost full, so please register soon! Fill out this form to register for the training or to request more information.
