Restorative Justice Programs & Services

The Restorative Approach
The restorative approach to conflict and crime emphasizes repairing the harm done to people and relationships rather than assigning blame and doling out punishment. This approach is based on the premise that conflict provides an opportunity to promote civic engagement, build community, and restore relations.

The MCJC presents conflict skills development classes, community forums, and workshops on topics related to crime and conflict to increase citizen capacity to manage individual disputes and be informed participants in resolving community problems.
