Karen Barbee is the Restorative Justice Coordinator for the RJ program at Youth Zone. She taught for more than 20 years in the RE-1 School District and offers mediation and nonviolent communication through her business.
“All that is valuable in human society depends upon the opportunity for development accorded the individual.” Albert Einstein’s words reflect perfectly the motivation behind my work with youth, their families, schools, and the community through Restorative Justice. We grow stronger as a society when there is a path to learn from mistakes, when forgiveness is offered, and healing for the one harmed is held with care. It is an honor to work at Youth Zone and to offer Restorative Justice!
