Peacemaking Circles & Urban Youth
Bringing Justice Home
By Carolyn Boyes-Watson

Peacemaking Circles and Urban Youth: Bringing Justice Home, by Dr. Carolyn Boyes-Watson (the director of the Center for Restorative Justice at Suffolk University) explores how the Circle process is being used by a remarkably innovative youth center outside Boston.  Nearly twenty years in operation, Roca, Inc., works with immigrant, gang, and street youth.  Using Circles extensively, not only with youth but also with the families and community as well as throughout the organization, is integral to Roca’s effectiveness.”Peacemaking Circles and Urban Youth” tells a compelling and inspiring story for any organization or person who works with young people, particularly troubled youth who desperately need community-based support to change the trajectory of their lives.
