Application Linkks below.

Foundation Course

Be a part of the structural change in the culture of the criminal legal system. Strengthen and empower communities. You will leave this course with the foundation required to facilitate transformative circles and accountability circles throughout with RJIOK in churches, neighborhoods, and prisons.


We believe that facilitating restorative practices requires a grounding in systems theory, trauma, restorative culture, cultural competence, self-awareness, emotional regulation, race theory, the prison industrial complex, the role of values and spirituality, and nonviolent communication.   

We are also working with specific organizations to offer the Foundations Facilitator Training and 2 day Circle Leader workshops.  See below for an overview of the foundations curriculum that can be tailored to your organization's needs.
