Restorative Practices has assumed international prominence as a preferred approach for working with children and youth at risk. There has been significant activity in Ontario implementing the model in school boards and in youth justice contexts. The Child and Youth Worker at George Brown College is the first CYW
program to embrace this philosophy and model within the curriculum, as a focus of research and as a platform for equip ping students and practitioners with the concrete tools for implementation. This article details the 6-year journey from inception and its current robust stage of work with children under 12 in a variety of settings ranging from Inner City schools to children’s mental health settings.
