YOUTH TRANSFORMATION CENTER

          Youth Transformation Center was established as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization in 2006 to deliver high impact prevention and intervention programs in schools and the juvenile justice system that promote restorative discipline, inclusivity, academic achievement, character development and leadership in youth.  Restorative Justice is a worldwide movement reaching critical mass.  Colorado is at the leading edge of the worldwide movement having signed into law five bills that promote restorative justice as a first consideration before suspending or expelling students in appropriate cases.    


 PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS

           Restorative Justice for Schools.  A cadre of practical tools for educators that can be applied to address discipline issues such as interpersonal conflicts, bullying, mean-girl aggression, sexting, sextortion, substance abuse, and cultures of disrespect that interfere with an effective learning environment.  Tools include the model of Restorative Justice recommended by Colorado legislation (HB 11-1032) that has the power to reduce discipline problems in schools by 50-75%, avoids pushing our children out of school, and keeps them from becoming unnecessarily embroiled in the justice system.
         
Boomerang Motivational Workshop for Teens.  An experiential goal-setting and character-building workshop for middle school and high school aged youth that gives them vital direction in life.  Participants take a self-inventory of their natural strengths and talents, explore relational career options, and have fun roleplaying appropriate social skills, communication skills and conflict resolution skills.  Students leave with a powerful action plan for life, power-tools for success, and a sense of urgency to get started.  In turn, these young people often leave risky behaviors behind, become leaders and positive peer role models at school, and take the high road to a productive future and economic self-sufficiency.
