Talking to Schools About the Trauma-to-Prison Pipeline: Training for Trainers

Location: Action Alliance
1118 W. Main St.
Richmond, VA, 23220

The vast majority of youth referred from school to law enforcement and into the juvenile justice system are survivors of trauma. The justice system typically fails to address, and often deepens, trauma. This 6-hour training will address the connections between trauma and system-involved youth, and will provide participants with a brief “training in a box” to take back to deliver to their local schools and task forces to start conversations about simple steps that schools can take to significantly reduce the number of youth referred to law enforcement by responding to students in more trauma-informed ways.

Lunch is provided.

Cost is $25.
