We welcome you to join us on Tuesday, March 26th, from 4:30 to 6:30 PM at the Glenwood Springs YouthZone office (413 9th St., Glenwood Springs, CO 81601). This training is open to everyone interested in understanding the deeper layers of RJ, its historical roots, implementation strategies, eligibility, and volunteering opportunities.
