Before you complete this application, you should have attended a FREE 30-minute introduction to the Restorative Practices model. The Restorative Practices model takes place in a physical location or remotely. As the Restorative Practices Alliance grows, and as the pandemic subsides, we will be offering more face-to-face cohorts in more places around the world.


We also strongly encourage you to create an account on the Restorative Practices E-Learning platform (this website), watch the Start Here video, and poke around a bit. This will help familiarize you with the model, who we are, and what we are working to do. There is a FREE membership that will give access to 8 practices, a BASIC membership with will give you access to 30 practices, and an ADVANCED membership that will give you access to all 100+ practices.

Application to Join a Restorative Practices Cohort
Part One- Personal Information
In order to begin, every Restorative Practices cohort must meet a diventity quotient. Diventity is a measure of the density of diversity in a cohort. Because the Restorative Practices model is a community-based neurodevelopmental model based on an equity framework, part of our explicit objective is to disrupt hegemonic structures and systemic oppressions. Because many of these structures operate in dominant society outside of our awareness, groups with insufficient diversity will often replicate these structures unwittingly. For this reason, in building cohorts, we consider the social locations of participants, and put together groups that contain individuals from different social locations. For those unfamiliar with the term, your social location is determined by your gender, race, social class, age, ability, religion, sexual orientation, gender presentation, and geographic location. We recognize that these categories are often to some degree fluid, and we'll talk more about that in the group, but we'd like you to share aspects of your social location here. Please note that model is most focused on race, gender, and class, in that order.
