RJOY’s capacity to continue its ground-breaking advocacy, training, and demonstration programs is made possible through the generosity of donors like you.

Now, more than ever, RJOY needs your support to work with community members to interrupt tragic cycles of incarceration, violence, unsafe schools and communities, and wasted lives by promoting a cultural shift toward restorative responses to harm.

We actively engage youth, their victims, and their families, schools, and communities in a shared search for ways to repair harmed relationships and prevent their recurrence. We provide education, training, and technical assistance and collaboratively launch demonstration programs with our school, community, juvenile justice, and research partners.

RJOY’s city-funded West Oakland Middle School pilot project eliminated violence and expulsions and reduced suspension rates by 87%. By the end of our time at Cole Middle School, students conducted their own peacemaking circles and learned to communicate in non-violent ways. We continue this groundbreaking work in some of Oakland’s most challenging schools, and you can partner with us by becoming a donor of much needed supplies.
