The Restorative Practitioner Training Institute is a new program of the Restorative Justice Institute of Maine and Youth MOVE Maine. Over 9 months, selected participants will attend a series of gatherings to build skills and support the development of restorative practices in Maine’s communities.

We were hired to help plan and facilitate a two-day intensive to kick off the Training Institute.
