Peacebuilders’ focus is not solely on what we do, but also how we do it. The restorative dialogue process that we call a Peacebuilding Circle is our fundamental methodology and central to all of our programs and initiatives. Peacebuilding Circles are structured group dialogues based upon traditional Aboriginal healing circle models that have been adapted by Peacebuilders to serve Toronto’s multicultural, urban populations.
Circles employ a restorative justice approach that facilitates non-confrontational, egalitarian, and healing dialogues between youths and community members. Circles create a safe space and enable people to have respectful conversations about difficult subjects, share different perspectives, accept responsibility for their actions, and re-build relationships.
Volunteer Appreciation Event
Peacebuilders would like to thank our volunteers for their hard work, dedication and time working with our youth in the justice system and the schools. We would also like to thank everyone who helped out at our very successful Spring for Peace gala in May and our wonderful Board members who volunteer their time to keep our organization running and a success. Without you as our volunteers, we would not exist.
