Do you have questions about restorative practices?

Schools across the country are beginnning to integrate restorative practices in their schools. Over the past five years, we've helped hundreds of NYC schools introduce restorative circles and related practices through our Restore360 Program.  We know how powerful these approaches can be. But they’re not simple.

This fall, we’re launching a new feature on our website to address educators’ questions and challenges related to restorative practices: Ask the Keeper. In this section of our website, our senior trainer and staff developer Marieke van Woerkom rolls up her sleeves to help you and your school successfully integrate these transformative approaches.

We invite you to send us your questions and challenges at Ask the Keeper!
