What People Are Saying About Alternatives’ Restorative Justice Program:

“Peer Conference is one of those small programs that can change the school.” -- Foreman High School Peace Ambassador

“Peer Conference is helpful because it gives you a way to practice resolving conflicts. I joined because I wanted to be a counselor or social worker. Peer Conference has taught me the skills I need for these jobs. Now I want to be a counselor at a public school and I feel more prepared because of peer conference.” – Senn High School Peace Ambassador
