“This project is an intensive SEL intervention for students involved in the justice system and housed in confined settings. This intervention is designed to support students in building foundational skills in the areas of Self-Awareness, Identity, Self-Regulation, Self-Advocacy and Decision Making/Problem Solving. Innovative curriculum is collaboratively designed and implemented with a Restorative Justice Practitioner and School-to-Prison Pipeline Survivor, to prepare students to more effectively access post release programming, and significantly reduce the rate of student return to confinement.”
