Restorative Justice empowers students to resolve conflicts on their own and in small groups.  The idea is to bring students together in ideally peer-mediated small groups to talk, ask questions, and air their grievances.

How to respond to a cry for help

  • Breathe!!
  • Be honest, caring and show respect.
  • Don’t make promises you can’t keep.
  • Don’t try to solve their problem.
  • Tell them:
    “I am glad you called/came/talked to me”
    “I do care. “What’s happening?”
    “How can I help”?
    “Let’s find someone who can help you get through this”.
  • Be A Link®!  And get help- don’t try to do this by yourself…don’t risk lives.
  • Remember, you can call the crisis line to help you help another.
