Welcome! CRC is in a period of tremendous growth! We are in many schools in NYC, facilitating restorative circles and Social and Emotional Learning (SEL). Our work has resulted in the dramatic reduction of suspensions in several schools.
Our Hudson Youth Leadership Academy (HYLA) continues at Rockland Community College each summer. Participants learn leadership skills and choose social change projects to support their communities.
We continue to work with formerly incarcerated women, their families, and their children. Participants have dinner, support each other, and learn conflict resolution, goal-setting, financial literacy, nutrition, parenting, substance abuse prevention, bullying intervention and prevention, and bias awareness.
We’ve received a grant from Judicial Arbitration & Mediation Services (JAMS) Foundation to create a program called Social Mediators! in partnership with an online bullying prevention group called Bridg-it. Stay tuned! We also received a grant from the NOVO foundation to expand our SEL work into North Rockland and Newburgh school systems in NY. The grant supports our courses through the Rockland Teacher Center and SUNY New Paltz.
