The YAP Training Team facilitates powerful workshops on how to build a meaningful youth-adult Restorative Practices & Equity Team (RPET). The beginner series is for schools that are "preparing" and "onboarding" and the advanced series is for schools that are "doing" and "sustaining". Participants receive a toolkit with resources to support the work at each phase.
A few member schools volunteer to host the group for a school visit. The host school's RPET develops an agenda for the ( tour, classroom observations, interviews, focus groups, etc) that allows for showcasing promising practices and exploring dilemmas. Participants bring ideas back to their own schools and help host schools address challenges and move forward.
Hosted by SEE, Youth Summit NYC brings together a collective of student activists and adult allies to highlight the effects of dispropor-tionality on students, while providing best practices to address and dismantle disproportionality. Through authentic youth-adult partnerships, we aim to elevate student perspectives and foster inclusive, humanizing, and critical learning environments for all members of our school communities.
