Youth Voice: Youth-led Restorative Practices
Members of Youth Voice at the Michigan Leadership Summit on School-Justice Partnerships: Keeping Kids in School and Out of the Justice System, held September 18-19, 2013 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The presentation focused on testimonies from youth in Detroit who’ve been affected by suspensions and their desires to be a part of implementing alternatives. The students discuss their understanding of the issue and how they envision a youth driven initiative that allows young people to be a part of the process.
