RESTORATIVE PRACTICES & Group Mentoring
Neutral Ground provides youth development and intervention support services to students in need; we accommodate each student's unique emotional and social needs as an alternative to the traditional punitive approach. Positive behavioral growth is encouraged through interactions with both a Restorative Practice Specialist and students versed in restorative practices.
