What We Do
SERVICES & TRAINING
We facilitate conflict resolution circles and train others to use restorative practices to build safe and peaceful communities.
Restorative practices are increasingly being used in our justice and education systems to respond to conflict and repair harm. Restorative practices are used to hold individuals accountable for harm caused, while also providing all parties directly affected by the conflict—both victims and communities—an opportunity to come together to identify and address their needs and make amends.
Peacebuilders’ offers conflict resolution and mediation services to respond to conflict in communities and schools throughout the GTA. We also offer training in restorative justice principles and practices to help others build safe and peaceful communities. Our restorative methods, Peacebuilding Circles, are based on the practices used in the Carcross/ Tagish First Nation, and were adapted to serve Toronto’s diverse urban neighbourhoods.
We offer conflict resolution facilitation in:
- Communities impacted by harm and trauma
- Elementary, middle and secondary schools
We offer workshops and training on:
- Restorative Justice principles and practices
- Restorative practices and Peacebuilding Circles with youth in conflict with the law
- Restorative practices and Peacebuilding Circles for elementary, middle, and high-school students
- Youth victimization and empowerment
