COMMUNITY CONFERENCING

COMMUNITY CONFERENCING

How Community Conferencing Works

Those directly involved and affected by the incident are invited, as well as supporters, and representatives from organizations the parties may find beneficial

A neutral third party facilitates the conference at a convenient location (library, community center, school, Mediation Center, etc.)

Parties discuss what occurred, how individuals were affected and work together to define a better path forward

Benefits & Outcomes

Conferences are an opportunity for responsible parties to take accountability for their actions and a stepping stone to:

• Build healthy communities

• Reduce the impact of harm and crime

• Repair and restore relationships

Over 90% of conferences result in agreements and over 91% of parties are compliant to the agreements
