Community Conferencing is a restorative justice practice designed to divert first-time non-violent offenders from the juvenile justice system and to reduce rates of suspension and expulsion in schools. Community Conferencing provides a cost-effective and meaningful community-based response to juvenile crime by empowering the community of people affected by the incident (victims, offenders, supporters) to collectively resolve the case themselves. Young offenders are held accountable for their actions; victims have a voice; and everyone decides how to best repair the harm and prevent future occurrences.
For more general program information or to discuss a referral to the program contact Shay Brooks, Community Conferencing Coordinator at SRBroo99@aacounty.org or 410-222-7591.
In collaboration with the Anne Arundel County Mental Health Agency, the Partnership offers one-on-one mentoring for youth with a mental health diagnosis between the ages of 11 and 21. In addition, the program offers enrolled youth the opportunity to meet monthly in a group setting to learn and connect with their peers while also learning valuable skills and tools to help them manage their mental well being.
