Building Nationwide Capacity
Restorative Strategies' vision is to build capacity in our nation around the philosophy of restorative justice and its practices. The mission is to expose schools, community based organizations, corporate/NGO entities and faith communities to the practical uses and application of these practices in all sectors of our community. Restorative Strategies supports the building of 'Ecosystems of Care' and the dismantling of the School to Prison Pipeline in schools and in their surrounding communities. Restorative Strategies works with both national, state and local agencies to see this vision become a reality through training, technical support and training trainers. Restorative Strategies is a force for change in our nation! Leading this effort is Dr. Robert A. Spicer Sr. who is the CEO and lead trainer for Restorative Strategies, LLC.
